Every week, Sofa rounds up the bits and pieces that kinda haven’t made it into a complete post… actually thats the aim. Not done one of these for a while, I guess its been a casualty of… you know… everything going a bit… weird. (Is “weird” the right word?)

Have you come across The National Prayer Breakfast in America? If you’re not sure, Wikipedia describes it as:
It is hosted by members of the United States Congress and is organized on their behalf by The Fellowship Foundation, a Christian organization. It is designed to be a forum for the political, social, and business elite to assemble and pray together.
Baring the above in mind, Jimmy Kimmel has shown a comparison between Donald Trump, and President Obama at the Prayer Breakfast…
Christian evangelist and hate-preacher Franklin Graham was scheduled to speak in Liverpool this summer as part of a longer UK tour, but that stop won’t be happening anymore.

Every week Sofa attempts to round up some of the bits of church internet, that didn’t really make it as a proper post. I say attempt – mostly because this doesn’t seem to have happened for a while. I’m not sure why.
Any way… This collection of fun links comes to you to the backdrop of “Happy Feet.” A bonkers film about singing penguins.
