Jim Bakker and The Civil War That Wasn’t

So here’s a little thing. Jim Bakker – him from The Jim Bakker show, in the light of Trump supporters storming the capital, has said that Christians don’t riot…

Which is fair enough, because you know…

A riot is bad.

A civil war on the other hand… is totally expected… I mean this is the guy that said… “there will be a civil war in the United States of America. The Christians will finally come out of the shadows because we are going to be shut up permanently if we’re not careful.”

There is also this… (kinda disturbing at points btw)

Giving something up for Lent in 2021

Hey, did you know that Lent is still a “thing” this year? Considering we basically all living on coping mechanisms in the UK, I figured Lent was… cancelled or something?

According to the email from the vicar, Lent isn’t cancelled – which has got me wondering. What is there left to give up for lent?

Here are a few ideas…

  1. Exercising somewhere a little different.
  2. Seeing people.
  3. Popping out for pint.
  4. Getting stressed about home schooling/
  5. Forgetting to wear a mask when out.
  6. Nipping to the shops for chocolate.
  7. Forgetting to remember to put healthy boundries in place between work and home life.
  8. Lockdowns*

Any other ideas?

*To be clear. Sofa approves of lockdowns, masks and stuff that helps to protect people – but I’m not sure what else is out there to stop!
