As 2018 draws to a close, I’m going to steal some some inspiration from a recent Facebook post from Barack Obama, and share some bits and pieces I’ve enjoyed seeing / reading / listening to over the last 12 months. They’ve all particularly inspired, or 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.
We’re going to start a new weekly* series called Hero / Villain of the week. Basically people would be a hero if they did something particularly cool, something note worthy… in a positive way… If someone is awarded “Villain” they just made us wince, sigh, or just shout out “DOH”.
We’re starting with Ben Sheward a verger at Westminister Abbey, who after a successful royal wedding, did cartwheels down the centre aisle. In my mind he managed to show great joyful emotion from the Westminister Abbey crew, sum up the mood of a nation, and provide a fantastic comedy moment at the same time.
Here is that moment:
Sorry about Phillip Schofield.
*We say “weekly” – we may not do another one for months…
[EDIT – 2nd May] Sadly it seems our hero has been looked upon as a Villain by the powers that be, and has been in trouble for showing joy… the Arch Bishop Cranmer is collecting a petition together in his support. May be worth checking it out… Please…
