The Church Sofa Half Serious Guide To Church: Mobile Phones

Love them?
Hate them?

They might be used to read Bible passages.
They might be used to Tweet.
They might be used to text someone else in the congregation.

There’s no doubting that mobile phones are (at least) going to be sat in peoples pockets during Church services, no matter what happens.

So. Just remember the golden rule… Keep your phone on silent… Everyone knows how embarrassing it is when your phone does go off during a service, and you dont want it happening to you… But it happening to someone else can be good fun… *

For this, make sure you’re sat in a solitary spot of the congregation, maybe an aisle that only has your self and your victim sat on, or a corner of the hall that only has a few people sat in. As a quiet moment of the service approaches, excuse yourself and step out, leaving your phone behind, set to loud, with your victim of choice.

After you’ve stepped out, take out your secret second mobile from your pocket, and ring your phone still in the church service.

Confusion and embarrassment will reign as everyone looks at and blames your victim for the ensuring distraction. The victim will then, in turn sit there for a moment or two of blissful ignorance of the fact that he is in fact in possession of the offending phone.

Fun times for all involved.

How do you welcome?

For some reason I’m on the welcome rota at our Church, but cant help think I’m not great at it.

In fact I’m probably somewhere between options 1 and 2… except with less running, hugging, and kissing…
