The church that Tany and I attend in Thame is a couple of years old. Planted by a local Baptist church we’ve seen steady growth over the last year to the point that we are now considering what the future holds and what the church is going to be like 12 months or more from now.
As part of this we have months of meetings ahead to work through the details. However, I can now safely say that we can skip the meeting for planning Sunday morning services thanks to this helpful instructional video…
As goofy as this story is (and dangerous–the boy ran a stop sign and nearly hit another motorist), it does prompt an obvious question for folks like us: Is your church a place kids (or anybody) would love to be? Or is your church so bad visitors would engage in a little grand theft auto to escape? (via Tony Morgan)
Tany and I are off to see ‘Just a Minute’ recorded tonight.
‘Just a Minute’ is a BBC Radio pannel game, where contestants must speak for 60 seconds on a given subject without pausing, hesitating or deviating. It’s fun, at least it is when you listen to it on the radio, so I hope that seeing it recorded will be just as entertaining.
The video above should give you a taste of what’s going on. There are six parts to it.
On 1st April every year the UK has this strange event called April Fools Day. For the morning only, you are allowed to tell tall tales (make up stories) and try to get others to believe them. The Church Mouse has published a list of his favourites here.
They’re all a little bit silly and often you end up waking up the following day wishing you hadn’t fallen for such a blatant untruth. However, occasionally there’s something that you wished had come true. So my question to you, which April Fools Day story did you hear that you wished wasn’t make believe?
