Now. This Is Something Nice.

I’m sure most of UK Christian Facebook has seen this, but its still going here, as well. Its nice to have something nice every now and then.

And this. It’s a little bit like a vocal hug.

If you’ve not heard this. Give this a listen. If you have. Well… perhaps give it another listen.

10 Excuses For Being Late to A Church Zoom Meeting

Meetings. They can be easy be late to right? Things like travel, people, and last minute things can lead to lateness without too much imagination needed when you need an excuse.

What about Zoom meetings*? You cant be late to a meeting if that meeting is online right? So what can you can say if you’re late to a meeting that is basically in your spare room?

Here’s our collection.

  1. The traffic on the staircase was a nightmare
  2. The kids were climbing on the laptop, which they had managed to smuggle to the top of the climbing frame. The situation needed the best of your negotiation skills.
  3. You had been led to rest in the spirit. (Probably best you don’t say this first thing, as they will guess that you just didn’t wake up)
  4. There was a chaos in the office kitchen.
  5. You were busy praying.
  6. Well, you kinda took the wise choice last night to actually turn off your laptop. The thing is you didn’t take that in account today so you had to wait an age before the laptop let you do anything. (Take the opportunity to begin a crowdfunder for new kit**)
  7. One moment you were waiting for the host to let you in. The next, the Spirit had taken you away. (Yes – to the fridge – but don’t say that)
  8. Launch into a 7 minute long tirade on the dangers of internet, and its influence on our abilty to remain undistracted. At the end, act like nothing was wrong, and carry on regardless.
  9. You were busy arguing on Twitter evangelising online.
  10. If nothing else. Blame the internet. Be glad you’ve put clothes on.

Note about this morning.

Just a reminder,

It’s ok if you over slept.

It’s ok if you ran around before Church.

It’s if you were late.

Also a reminder

It’s not ok if you went to a Church Gathering, that’s not social distancing. It’s also not loving your neighbour.

It’s also not ok if you switched the video chat on before you’d finished getting dressed for Church.

What To Look For In A New Church – In Early 2020

Are you considering going to a new Church? Is there somewhere you have your eye on? A Church you’ve been pondering?

At the beginning of 2020, this looked somewhat different to how they are now. Therefore Sofa felt an update on the post he wrote back then might… helpful.

So. Before you look for a new Church, during a Coronavirus outbreak, there are a few questions you may want to ask yourself…

  1. Is the Church closed to services and other gatherings? (At the very least)
  2. Is the Church closed to services and other gatherings? (At the very least)
  3. Is the Church closed to services and other gatherings? (At the very least)
  4. Is the Church closed to services and other gatherings? (At the very least)
  5. Is the Church closed to services and other gatherings? (At the very least)
  6. Is the Church closed to services and other gatherings? (At the very least)
  7. Is the Church closed to services and other gatherings? (At the very least)
  8. Is the Church closed to services and other gatherings? (At the very least)

If the answer is no, Sofa suggests watching a different Youtube upload / livestream.
