While on a train down from Manchester, we started writing a list…
- Watch TV
- Watch that DVD you’ve been meaning to watch
- Use wii fit
- Talk with a person you live with.
- Listen to a person you live with.
- If you don’t live with anyone – phone someone you know.
- Know noone? Take a wonder to your community centre and see if there are any events that take your fancy.
- Use your bike.
- Take a walk.
- Wash up.
- Water the plants.
- Got kids? Play with them.
- Married and dont have kids? Do something about that.

I’d like to say that quite clearly the two of us sat on the church sofa are not biased in anyway. At a lot times we’re complete opposites in opinion for example I clearly love chairs in church whilst the other Andy clearly loves pews* and this time is no different. You see I’m a Mac and the other misguided member of the church sofa team is a PC. So here’s a number reasons why Macs are better than PC’s.
1. My Mac still works
2. Macs do what you want them to with out much effort (i.e. connect to a wifi internet connection and you can use the internet, no fiddling round with IP addresses)
3. Macs are sexy
4. Macs are ready to go out the box – everything is already there install a few extra applications you want and you’re set
5. My Mac still works
6. You only need anti virus so that you don’t pass on PC viruses to PC users, the just don’t do anything to Mac at the moment
7. Loads up quickly – turn a mac on and it asks for your password, turn a PC on you go and make a cup of tea and then wait for it finish
And did I mention my Mac still works?
I’m sure there will be an appropriate Why PCs are better post soon, well as soon as the other Andy fixes his PC/buys a Mac.
If you can think of any other reasons please post them below.
*to be honest I can’t really remember which way round the chair and pew thing was anymore.
**Please note this post is made in jest and is not a definitive guide on why Macs are better than PC’s and The Church Sofa still remain entirely unbiased on this issue.

I came across this comment by Gerald Hinson on VickyBeeching.com, thought worth while sharing (hope he doesn’t mind)
“A friend of mine who is now a follower of Jesus once lead a very different life. At his lowest he dabbled in Satanism and the occult. During that time he was mentored by another person much farther along in the occult world than he. One day the mentor shared with my friend that he was able to “see” a very powerful force emanating from within followers of Jesus. “However” he said, “the curious thing is that most of them have no idea they possess this power. Not really…. at least not enough that they are a danger to us. If they knew who they really were and the power that lives inside them, they would be a formidable force to reckon with.”
I was first told this story 23 years ago and have never forgotten it.”
A quick punchy approach to it this week:
And finally, the BBC have shared a number of stories from people who have all experienced some amazing “Good Samaritan” moments. From angels on the road side to being near death, its worth checking out!
Well this evening we took a quick survey of the people we could find, and asked them “How would you make church more exciting?”. These are the top ten answers we got:
- In door fireworks… At any given moment
- Britain’s got talent style buzzers used during the sermon
- If the preacher goes over the allocated time slot… Paint ball guns…
- Mute button on the worship leader for when he / she goes off on one.
- An interesting way of presenting the Bible reading
- A gunge tank… Because they’re not used enough these days…
- When someone finds a name thats complete unpronouncable a competition to be the first to say it the most ridiculusly should follow
- Drop subtle word changes into the song lyrics and see how many people around you actually sing them.
- After the service ends – organise fort building challenges using the pews / chairs / leadership team – to help build community.
- Employ a clown to welcome people in.
