Climate Justice at G7

For those in Cornwall or Devon, its becoming harder to ignore that the G7 conference is about to begin.

To mark this, a group of young Christians from across Cornwall have written an open letter to World Leaders demanding climate justice ahead of the G7 summit.

Here’s a little about it.

The hope is to have 1,000 by G7, with the hope of reaching 5,000 names by the COP26 event in November. (So if you’re reading this after June – there’s still time to sign!)

You can find the open letter, which calls on the G7 countries to cut CO2 emissions to zero, end funding of fossil fuels and support the world’s poorest communities that have been affected by climate change here.

Is The Covid19 Vaccine The Mark of The Beast?

Question.

Is The Covid19 Vaccine The Mark of The Beast?

Answer:

No.

Longer Answer:

Even longer answer:

Whilst we’re talking about the covid 19 vaccine being a good thing, that stops you from getting sick, can I point out the Twin My Vaccine Campaign, raising money for people who may other wise not get one.

The Weekly Round Up

Its been a month or so since I’ve done one of these. Maybe I should call this a monthly round up?

Basically Sofa used to do a round up – used to be weekly which involved posting random silly church stuff from that week, that didn’t fit anywhere else.

In an attempt to bring it back for at least a week, here are some highlights from that beautiful world of the church internet…

Hillsong Hit With Lawsuits

It seems…

The beleaguered Hillsong Church is facing a whole new set of internal issues this week after two real estate lawsuits were filed against them over an alleged failure to pay rent during the pandemic and building a structurally unsound apartment complex.

Church for Trump

The Church rhetoric for Trump has started ramping up with stuff like this:

MacArthur, who leads Grace Community Church in California, warned Biden against placing his hands on the Bible whilst doing “the very things that blaspheme [God’s] name”. Biden took the Presidential oath of office while placing his hand on an 1893 edition of the Douay Rheims Bible – a Catholic translation – which has been in the family for generations.

Premier Christianity

I dont remember MacArthur having a problem when Donald Trump forced his way through a crowd to take a photo of himself holding a Bible upside down?

The Big 2020 Church Sofa List of Favourite Things

Well. 2020.

That was a… laugh… or something. A bit like having root canal, whilst having my toes tickled by a deranged clown.

Over the last couple of years I’ve attempted to share some of my favourite bits and pieces that I’ve enjoyed seeing / reading / listening to over the last 12 months. They’ve all particularly inspired, or held my attention in some way.

There will also be Church Sofa highlights thrown in there as well.

There may well be affiliate links thrown in to the mix, but if you dont know any of the below I’d encourage you to check it all out.

Some of my favourite books from this year:

My Favourite Christian Meme

Church Sofa Guide.

Was it born from tripping up the stairs? Was it because of congestion at the coffee machine? Could it have been the queue at the toilet?

10 Excuses for being late for a Church Zoom meeting was the outcome.

My Favourite Movies of 2020

Well, were there many new movies out there this year?

I saw Birds of Pray… that was… “alright”.

For a random suggestion, we came across “Katy” on the CBBC part of iPlayer here in the UK. We went in there blind so it probably hit us emotionally more as a result, but if you’re in the UK and looking for something with “talking points” to watch with the kids – that would be my suggestion.

My Favourite Songs of 2020

Well… I dont care if its over played…

Church Notice Board of The Year

Well… this was the most viewed of the year…

But.

Lets close this little yearly roundup with this instead..

And its possibly a note to go into 2021 on…

What are your highpoints from 2020? Are there any?

The Weekly Round Up

Ok I’ve not done one of these for a while.

Basically Sofa used to do a round up… I guess posting random silly church stuff from that week, that didn’t fit anywhere else.

In an attempt to bring it back for at least a week, here are some highlights from that beautiful world of Twitter…

Here’s a sermon clip showing that 85% of stats used in sermons are made up.

Is it me or is this sounding a little bit like brainwashing?

While… that last guy was a little musical sounding… here’s something a bit more musical…

And here’s to nothing but peace and love coming from the direction of the church over December…

The Morning After The Night Before…

Well.

Sofa is aware that he occupies a very niche area in the world of blogs.

Some sort of weird church place? With an interest in an American approach?

So. What the heck is a sofa meant to say the day after an American election, in which both sides are claiming that God is on their side?

I don’t have a clue.
