Joy, Fraud, and See Through Toilets

With a title such as “Joy, Fraud, and See Through Toilets”, this can only be this weeks weekly round up:

  • After a week where some people can argue that the Lib Dems became a little bit more blue, and politics became a little less fair; its good to see the URC, Baptists, and Methodists ganging up on the government and claim foul over benefit fraud claims. Anyone know why the C of E Wasn’t involved? Read more on BBC News
  • The Blue Fish Project discusses lack of joy in older Christians, while Jon Butler looks at the need to be more child like – I’m personally already designing my new imaginary friend. Read Jon’s blog to understand what I mean!
  • The Digital Spy seems shocked that Alice Cooper believes in Demons.
  • And finally… It is rumoured that The Anglican Archbishop of Cape Town has shown interest in See Through Toilets. Read the eChurch to try and figure out whats really going on!

The Church Sofa Weekly Round Up

Here’s this weeks weekly round up…

To start with, some serious C of E news, it seems there have been some factions opening up and things like that. If you feel like you can concentrate then the Church Mouse explains it all. (Not to be confused with Clarissa…)

Have you heard about the Steelroots saga? If not check out our post here. While the eChurch goes a little deeper, giving a little bit more detail about the tale of the American Bully Boys. If you want a lesson on irony check out the American Steelroots Twitter page.

On a lighter note. According to the BBC, contrary to popular reports, Homer and Bart Simpson are not Catholic.

On a final note if your interested in “iPhone Photography” you may want to check out the Project 365 blog from “ThatAndy”.

This Week’s RoundUp

Every now and then – when we can, we’re going to try and round up the best of some of the best blogs, articles, and websites we find online. Here’s our first lot:

  • The CNN Belief blog takes a look at the belief of the Chilean miners, and how they came across some Jesus T Shirts. On that note… Can we get some?
  • It seems that Dave Walker has hasn’t really been elected to the General Synod. Personally speaking…I think its simply an elaborate double bluff…
  • The Urban Pastor talks us through the best ways to ruin your small group / housegroup / homegroup. I’m quite a fan of number 1…
  • Scott Gould asks “Who Is Your Phyllis Wills?” – powerful stuff!
  • From the makers of thechurchsofa, we present our own site dedicated to Dartmoor. The site is a directory of some of the best Activities, and places to stay in Dartmoor, Devon, please feel free to check it and let us know what you think.
