Stop Blogging. Do Something.

Let me tell you a story.

Pretty much a year ago, we published the following:

If you haven’t noticed. Twitter was all a bit of a storm over the weekend, with Christians either having a moan about a new book from Rob Bell, or having a moan about people having a moan about Rob Bell… To the point he started trending on Twitter. Seriously… people thought he had died!

While all this was going on, a few people started muttering about soup kitchens being banned in Westminster.

Thats a joke right? In the age of “Big Society” and people looking after each other… instead of the government being involved… you would think that soup kitchens would be encouraged.

The Daily Mail seems to confirm this isn’t a joke…

Now why cant we all get angry over this instead?

 

(On a side note. Lets wait for Robs’ book to be released before we all go nuts…)

Now, this did prompt some discussion on Twitter, mostly about homelessness, but there was one comment that stick with me a little bit. I cant remember who said it, cant remember exactly what was said, but it was something like: “Instead of being angry, why dont you do something?”

So I’m going to put it to you.

Do you fancy doing something a little unique and different for charity, and possibly help one more person not have to sleep rough?

The Church Sofa Lads are taking part in the Exeter Sleep Easy, why dont you join in either at Exeter, or at one of many many locations around England.

I’d like to say that quite clearly the two of us sat on the church sofa are not biased in anyway. At a lot times we’re complete opposites in opinion for example I clearly love chairs in church whilst the other Andy clearly loves pews* and this time is no different. You see I’m a Mac and the other misguided member of the church sofa team is a PC. So here’s a number reasons why Macs are better than PC’s.

1. My Mac still works
2. Macs do what you want them to with out much effort (i.e. connect to a wifi internet connection and you can use the internet, no fiddling round with IP addresses)
3. Macs are sexy
4. Macs are ready to go out the box – everything is already there install a few extra applications you want and you’re set
5. My Mac still works
6. You only need anti virus so that you don’t pass on PC viruses to PC users, the just don’t do anything to Mac at the moment
7. Loads up quickly – turn a mac on and it asks for your password, turn a PC on you go and make a cup of tea and then wait for it finish

And did I mention my Mac still works?

I’m sure there will be an appropriate Why PCs are better post soon, well as soon as the other Andy fixes his PC/buys a Mac.

If you can think of any other reasons please post them below.

*to be honest I can’t really remember which way round the chair and pew thing was anymore.

**Please note this post is made in jest and is not a definitive guide on why Macs are better than PC’s and The Church Sofa still remain entirely unbiased on this issue.
