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…
You dont need any of that stuff over the next 40 days…
You know you’re ready for anything over the next 40 days…
Hang on…. How many days?
And now you really want chocolate…
Its ok. Its nearly Easter…
Well this is based on what I’ve seen from other people. Is there anything you would add to the above?
As seems to now be tradition. Heres a repeat of a little something I did a few years ago as part of a wider online project. (And also gave birth to Tales From The ToyShelf).
Here is a series of of photos of Lego men telling the Lego Easter Story… Please feel free to drop me an email if you have any questions about it.
(It also seems to be turning into a tradition that I keep meaning to create an updated version)
The Star Wars Lego Easter Story.
“Go to the village ahead of you”
1 As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage and Bethany at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two of his disciples, 2 saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and just as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, which no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here. 3 If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you doing this?’ say, ‘The Lord needs it and will send it back here shortly.’”
Mark Chapter 11
After failing in their search for a lego donkey… the disciples decided at least something with horsepower would do…
#EasterLIVE Mark11 Palm Sunday
8 Many people spread their cloaks on the road, while others spread branches they had cut in the fields. 9 Those who went ahead and those who followed shouted,
“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”[b]
10 “Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!”
“Hosanna in the highest heaven!”
11 Jesus entered Jerusalem and went into the temple courts. He looked around at everything, but since it was already late, he went out to Bethany with the Twelve.
Mark Chapter 11
Turning The Temple Tables
15 On reaching Jerusalem, Jesus entered the temple courts and began driving out those who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves, 16 and would not allow anyone to carry merchandise through the temple courts. 17 And as he taught them, he said, “Is it not written: ‘My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations’[c]? But you have made it ‘a den of robbers.’[d]”
18 The chief priests and the teachers of the law heard this and began looking for a way to kill him, for they feared him, because the whole crowd was amazed at his teaching.
