Them: Live biblically

Every now and then, Twitter plays a game. Recently a game has been played which I’ll call “Live biblically”.

I don’t know how “Live Biblically” started, but it seems to be based around people being told to live biblically, then actually thinking about what it means. (In their own personal opinion…)

Here’s some some of my favourites…

Have a look over at Twitter for… quite a few more.

For a slightly different take, check out the What Would Jesus Do Generator.

Do You Need A Christian Calendar?

Do you still need a calendar for 2019?

How about something a little Christian?

What about something a little fun?

What if I told you there was yet another edition of the “Nuns Having Fun Wall Calendar?” (affiliate link)

According to Amazon:

They work hard, they pray hard–and they do it with gusto! Twenty-four sweet photos display the delightful, adventurous, and joyfully unexpected sides of convent life, every month. With sweet, witty captions offered up by Maureen Kelly and Jeffrey Stone, coauthors of the New York Times bestselling Growing Up Catholic. A sister leading an Irish jug: “But Sister Bridget, we’re Polish!” Beaming under an umbrella: “The forecast calls for manna from heaven today.” On a motorbike: “I know a shortcut to the highway to heaven.” And nuns with a heavy string of the day’s catch: “Good things come to those who bait!”

Sounds great for someones wall.

Grab it from Amazon!!!!

As 2018 draws to a close, I’m going to steal some some inspiration from a recent Facebook post from Barack Obama, and share some bits and pieces 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.

Santa and Jesus, A Comparison.

May I present, not one. But two comparisons between Jesus, and Santa Claus.

The first is this little video…

The second is this very serious Bible study*. Which looks at a number of comparisons… for example, I never knew that God said “…Ho, Ho…”

On that note, does anyone know the Bible Verse about Jesus wearing crimson red? I remember coming up with a biblically based reason why Santa was red**… but I kinda need that Bible verse to be able to talk about it…

*One or two verses may be a little out of context.

** Plot Twist. Its not very Biblical.

When The Pastor Goes Over The Top…

Have you ever known a Church Pastor to be a little “over the top”?

Have you ever worried that they would do something a bit… mad one Sunday morning?

Probably best to keep them away from this video clip… (and zip wires).

Obviously… if you do have a zip wire in your church, please let us know how its used…

To get you in the mood for Fireworks night…

Well this is something that falls into the “dont try this at home” camp. Actually you might not want to do it at church either… at least not the OK from the second church in question.

Even then… it may just be best to go to Greece and watch it there*.

*Maybe even then, you might want to watch from a distance… possibly.
