As 2019 crashes to an end, I’m going to carry on a tredition (that has only happened for a year so far), and share some bits and pieces I’ve enjoyed seeing / reading / listening to over the last 12 months. They’ve all particularly inspired, or at least held my attention in some way.
There will also be Church Sofa highlights thrown in there as well.
There may well be affiliate links thrown in to the mix, but if you dont know any of the below I’d encourage you to check it all out.
Sometimes, my mind wonders. Once I wondered about “Wouldn’t it be funny if a particular situation happened”. The thing is, there would have to be a biblical basis for the trouble was created?
That led to the post 10 ways to create trouble in church… but being biblical about it! – After some ideas from @DavidSJAustin on Twitter, I wondered if there more ideas for the Biblically minded trouble maker…
If you are still in a trouble making mood, and looking for more ideas – then check out our following list:
Call down fire from Heaven.*
Busy Church service? Make a hole in your Church roof to ensure people can get a good view of the speaker.**
Answer the criticism of Biblically inaccurate Hollywood movies, by putting on a Biblically accurate live drama of, The Song of Songs.
Bring your sleeping bag to Church. (Dropped down through the ceiling).
Have a fig tree in or near the Church grounds? Take a cutting, plant it properly, and bring it to Church. If anyone asks, explain you are trying to redeem it as you’re worried its cursed.
Bring your donkey to Church.***
Share honey with people at Church. If they ask where it came from, tell them you found it in a lion carcass.
Bring your dead granny to Church and ask the vicar to raise her up.
Church leader preaching on Noah? Get the taps running. ****
Cover yourself in cornflakes and ring a bell, shouting “unclean, unclean”.
*You may get some odd looks if you do this. ** Heavy tools may be needed.
*** Could get messy.
**** Remember, Life jackets could be useful if the doors are shut.*****
***** Are these stars getting silly now?
Obviously the sofa takes no responsibility for anything you do as a result of reading this. Ever.
It’s new, it’s exciting and it’s almost definitely true!
The church Sofa lads are going to get some church sofa t shirts, and we need your help to design it, if you’d like to submit a design, the best one when we decide to close the competition will be turned into an actual tshirt and you will receive a signed photo of both Andy’s in their very own church sofa tshirt’s*.
You may be thinking, hold on a sec the church sofa seems reasonably well designed…these guys must be able to design a tshirt. Well this is the best we’ve come up with. And if you don’t come up with something better we’ll make this!
So you might be thinking now, but I don’t have any design software? or I don’t know how to use it?
If that’s you feel free just to let us know a catchy slogan that would either go with the church sofa logo or would be a good stand alone slogan about church.
*You dont have to have a photo unless you really want too!
