The Church Sofa Weekly Round Up

I dont know about you but this week seemed to have gone by in a bit of a blur – like super quick. Every weekish, Sofa does a round up of Christian / Church internet…

And… well. this round up – its a bit self indulgent.

This weeks round up is completed to the back drop of UCB1.

Christian Twitter likes talking about the radio.

Ok heres the self indulgent bit.

It appears that someone in the CofE said something about how the church should talk the language of radio 2 – not radio 3. This prompted at least one out burst from a radio 3 listener… and well… people started talking what radio stations they listen to. Prompting this poll from the Sofa. (I did say this was self indulgent)

Considering the amount of people who responded about other options, I guess the lesson is that there are more than just “two voices” out there.

Personally I like prefer listening to podcasts.

And Doctor Who audios.

This Is No White Jesus.

Meanwhile. Over In An American Church

Lastly.

If you’ve got a ticket for Church tomorrow. Remember. Play nice (ideally two meters way from others)

What times should you give money?

Should you give god your money when you have money?

Should you give god your money when you have plenty?

Well. TV Evangelist Kenneth Copeland – the guy that basically tried to blow co-vid19 away – reckons there are two times in everyones’ lives that they should give money…

The Weekly Round Up

Every week, sofa posts a round up of stuff that didn’t make it to its own post. Considering some of the news from this week, I’m going to try and minimise my comment a little on the below.

On a light note – todays round up is being typed to the back drop of “The Odd Squad” from CBBC. (Thats right, not cbeebies, little sofa is growing up!)

Donald Trump and The Bible.

Well, in case you’ve missed it. Here’s a summery of what Donald did with the Bible.

I’m not in the habit of quoting The Bible Society, but they’ve not held back with that they think…

It’s not entirely clear what Mr Trump intended to convey by this photo-op, but it’s a disturbing image. Certainly he outraged the church’s bishop: Rt Revd Mariann Budde told CNN, ‘Let me be clear, the President just used a Bible, the most sacred text of the Judeo-Christian tradition, and one of the churches of my diocese, without permission, as a backdrop for a message antithetical to the teachings of Jesus.’

It’s genuinely troubling to see the Bible being used as a prop – particularly when, as the bishop says, it’s associated with images of violence. Co-opting the Bible as a justification for repression is unacceptable.

The Bible Society

When Pat Robertson Has Something To Say…
