Looking Back At My Christian Goals For 2020

Alright, so I’ve just stumbled on a list of Christian goals I wrote for 2020. As they were posted up here, I’m fairly certain they were goals that were not meant to be taken seriously, I wanted to take a moment to look at how they had all gone.

Warning. If you want to read a tale of achievement, look away now. (Actually this probably isn’t the blog for you anyway)

Here is how I did with my planned goals for 2020. (Or at least some of them – I wrote quite a few goals down…)

Go to church once or twice.Well the good news is I succeeded here. I did indeed go to church once or twice. Doesn’t feel like much more in person…

“Learn Ancient Greek” So I went from having super low expectations to either having super high expectations… I hope I was just joking. (Ancient Greek readers – Please don’t hate me)… most of these comments could also apply to when I wrote “read the bible”. (Put the burning pitchforks down people – I think I meant reading all of it)

“Pray every now and then”.

Praying “God. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh?” counts right?

“Enjoy Gods Not Dead 3.” It hasn’t seemed to make it to Netflix… So I guess that one remains on my “watch list”.

“Enjoy Church Squash” I guess one disadvantage to lockdown is that I’m confined to drinking my own squash?

“Read any book” I’ve just finished reading “Checkpoint” – Basically a look at how video games help our mental health. Totally recommended. Get it here, and I might get a few pence because of it.

“Write that ebook I joked about once”

I actually forgot about this one. I think the idea was to take the argument “its not in the Bible”, and take everything that we assume is ok, or “biblical”, and try and work out where it came from.

Perhaps this is the year for it?

Church Online: A personal highlight

While having the church livestream on…

Guy leading prayers online: “…you might want to pause in the quietness…

Home: *The lounge echoes with sounds of the globe being smacked by a lightsaber… moments before said globe is kicked into the Christmas tree.*

Christmas 2020.

Are you ready for this?

Introducing a new Bible translation…

A new bible translation from the makers of Church Sofa*.

Instead of reading the Bible, you can now eat it – and it will taste sweet! Each verse being one sweet!

Coming soon to a Christian book shop near you!

*Nah, we’re not making this. But if we were, there would be an interesting story involving our first book, and an autocorrect fail.

Do Christians Meet On Holiday?

Welcome to August!

That time when people in the UK generally seem to go on holiday, and I dont know about you, sometimes I research online before we go anywhere.

If you’ve ended up researching if Christians meet on holiday? Hopefully this will help!

Anything that should be added?

One Year…

I’ll find a way of saying what I should say on our Wedding Anniversary, with out the help of ASBO Jesus.

Until that year comes…

Happy Anniversary Mrs Sofa

A Plug.

Is there a way to have a self indulgent plug about another website, and have no one notice?

What if I include a photo of a plug?

What if I come up with a way of rating how much of “a plug”, “a plug” is. (Obviously the highest score would be an actual electrical plug)

What if I said that the editor of this fair blog had a website that was a collection of photography, and other creative endeavors? If I said that website was found here at andymackay.org.uk, would any one notice such a blatant plug?

Or would it be as subtle as a Church Treasurer explaining that the church needs more money?

5 Hours After I Stop…

This is me,

Five hours after I “stop” looking up stuff online, and go for an early night…


The great thing is, people always presume little Sofa is responsible for me not sleeping…
