Sofa. Being a Church Sofa, has a habit of hanging out in Churches, and with Church people. As part of that Sofa has seen what people put themselves through during Lent. There appears to be different stages of coping with giving something up for Lent…

That moment when you happily accept the challenge…

The National Prayer Breakfast

Have you come across The National Prayer Breakfast in America? If you’re not sure, Wikipedia describes it as:

It is hosted by members of the United States Congress and is organized on their behalf by The Fellowship Foundation, a Christian organization. It is designed to be a forum for the political, social, and business elite to assemble and pray together.

Baring the above in mind, Jimmy Kimmel has shown a comparison between Donald Trump, and President Obama at the Prayer Breakfast…

Subtle difference…
