Weekly Round Up – The “I’m Sorry” Edition

Here’s  this weeks / last weeks round up:





Do You BLAB?

Well here’s something thats just appeared on our radar.

Following “Chirp – The Christian Alternative To Twitter“, it looks like MyBlab is here to join in the Christian social networking party. From the looks of it… it seems to be presenting itself as an alternative to Facebook. I cant help but wonder, why are these sites set up?

Whats so bad with Christians being part of Twitter / Facebook?

Weekly Round Up – After The Royal Wedding Edition

Welcome to this weeks roundup:

  • ASBOJesus looks at the royal wedding
  • The MadPriest looks at the reaction from Westminster Abbey to Ben Sheward – the cartwheeling verger.
  • Moving away from the wedding… CNN looks at the story of J.Wilson… and his Beer only fast.
  • Jon Butler looks at all being about context.
  • And finally… The Church Mouse has released his birth certificate to confirm he is indeed a mouse. Sadly it doesn’t confirm why he looks a little bit gerbil…


Ben Sheward – Hero of The Week

We’re going to start a new weekly* series called Hero / Villain of the week. Basically people would be a hero if they did something particularly cool, something note worthy… in a positive way… If someone is awarded “Villain” they just made us wince, sigh, or just shout out “DOH”.

We’re starting with Ben Sheward a verger at Westminister Abbey, who after a successful royal wedding, did cartwheels down the centre aisle. In my mind he managed to show great joyful emotion from the Westminister Abbey crew, sum up the mood of a nation, and provide a fantastic comedy moment at the same time.

Here is that moment:

Sorry about Phillip Schofield.

*We say “weekly” – we may not do another one for months…

[EDIT – 2nd May] Sadly it seems our hero has been looked upon as a Villain by the powers that be, and has been in trouble for showing joy… the Arch Bishop Cranmer is collecting a petition together in his support. May be worth checking it out… Please…

The Weekly Round Up – The Delayed Edition

Due to easterLive taking over last week – please consider this less of a “roundup” – more a collection of random bits and pieces:

  • Did you like the Lego Easter? You may enjoy the Jelly Baby Easter
  • The 21st Century Christian makes a comment on his local Easter celebrations.
  • Moving away from Easter, and back on an old topic… @Gerrarrdus looks at tweeting in Church.
  • The Archbishop of Canterbury makes a good move.
  • While the Bishop of Oxford doesn’t make a good move… The Church Mouse takes a look at what he said…
  • On a different note, DigitalSpy have done an article on controversial video games – look out for the question that they leave us all with.
  • Last but not least, huge thanks to ShareCreative and all the folks involved with running EasterLIVE. Personally I loved how it brought home to me the crazy events that was the original Easter… it also gave me an excuse to play with Lego…
