So you may have noticed a picture on the side of The Church Sofa about Laughing with some guy named Tom. We thought you all might like to find out a little more about who this guy is so we invited him to join us on the sofa for a while and tell us a bit more. Please sit back, relax and enjoy our interview with the man behind ‘Laughing with Tom’
If you could be any vegetable, what would you be and why?
Ooh, I think that would have to be a carrot. For no other reason than because I love carrots and houmous.
What is your favorite pudding and why?
Banoffee pie. Taste it and see. I tell you, it’s the desert of the heavenly banquet – believe me, I’ve checked.
Are you a funny man, a magic man, a speaker man, or a preacher man? Or a combination?
A combination – A little bit like Banoffee pie. Special.
Tell us a joke…
Went into tesco’s and all these dwarfs were stacking shelves, I thought ‘Every little helps…’
What’s your book about?
It’s a combination of stories, both humorous and serious, illustrating quick thoughts and biblical reflections.
Welcome to the new look Church Sofa website. We have taken the redesign as a chance to include a few toys. One of which is a flickr account… which doesn’t seem to be playing with our slide show – which is meant to be on the left hand side.
Like everyone else, we now have a Facebook page. If you like us and want to receive updates via Facebook, please feel free to click on “Like” on the left hand side of this screen. We’ll probably update it with random bits and pieces as well at somepoint.
Obviously if you’ve read this via Facebook, then I’m sorry for what’s such a self defeating post.
It is all a bit of a work in progress at the moment, so sorry if anything seems messy.
If something looks actually broken by the way – Please give us a shout!
Thats me in that rather dodgy dark photo – Its the best I could find online.
Why do I have a photo of myself on the site? Well its because I’m looking totally ridiculus cool in my new beard that I grew as part of ‘Movember’, a campaign designed to help raise awareness of, and funds for the fight against Prostrate cancer.
The Church Sofa lads seem to be moving in a new direction. We’re already involved in tech support, youth work, worship leading, trying to follow God, researching into the best direction for church in terms of seating and various other things that come to mind. However, in the fairly near future we’ll be venturing into the art of interviewing.
No neither of us have been given a promotion to be a manager or team leader or anything like. Rather we’re going to be interviewing people that we think will be helpful in our journey of following Christ so watch this space for some great looking interviews with organisations and people who have a great story to tell.
