Something For The new Christian in Your Church?

Have you got a new Christian in your Church? 

There can be many questions: When do you stand? How much Communion wine is to much Communion Wine? And what do all those words mean? Why does it feel all a little bit “The greater good” at times? 

Dont send them on a 10 week course, invest in a course of Christianese Tapes instead!* 

Ok, so this “tape” may not actually exist – but if someone would like to create a series of podcasts for me that would be great!

A Very Christian Christmas Tree?

Coming across this picture, I cant help but wonder; What does a Christmas tree for a Christian actually look like?

Does it have Jesus on the top?

Are they decorated with Bible verses?

If you’re really quiet can you hear it gently pray for you?

Do any lights on it shine like stars?

Can someone buy one and please let me know??

Slim With Him!

Are you a Christian who… for what ever reason likes the idea of losing a bit of weight? 

Have you wondered what a Christian approach might be to losing weight? 

Check out Slim With Him: A guide to slimming the biblical way. According to Amazon:

Slim with Him is a guide to slimming in an effortless way. It uses the grace that has been freely given to us by Christ, and encourages us to get closer to God, so that our needs will be met through Him, rather than food or a crash diet.

Keeping Christian Families Entertained During The Holidays

Welcome to the school holidays! If you don’t have kids, this probably means an easier journey to work, if you do this probably means you, or someone else needs to come up with ways to stop the little darlings from watching nothing but Cbeebies all day long. 

But what can be done to entertain young Christian families throughout the holidays? Well Sofa is here to help*.

Here is our list of ways to keep Christian families entertained during the school holidays…

  1. Compile a list of all the local holiday clubs. GET TO ALL OF THEM.
  2. Learn a Bible verse a day.
  3. Colour in pencil drawings of crosses.
  4. Picnics! AKA portable communions…
  5. Go on a family pilgrimage. (Possibly to the local cheap family friendly pub)
  6. Take all your toilet rolls and try recreating the Tower of Babel.
  7. Encourage the smalls ones to make a joyful noise! Joyful… may mean screaming…
  8. Build a castle out of left over Bible study notes.
  9. Is it raining outside? Time to encourage baptisms in the puddles.
  10. When all else fails… 80s Christians movies on Youtube? (On second thoughts dont do that. Some of them are quite scary!)

Any other ideas you would like to add?

*Obviously “help” is a subjective concept…
