Emerging church, huh?
My last post on this blog showed the only thing emerging for me on a Sunday was, well, nothing because I stayed in bed all day. Today may be busier because there's the football (avoid), a grand prix (watch) and, more importantly, a Sanctus1 service in which we all get to be angry and throw things at each other.
If you have a quieter day than me, why not surf the web? See if you can find God or perhaps his good friend Jesus in any of these links...
If you run Sanctus1, you absolutely must have a laptop, but not one of these exploding ones. They could hurt, in which case I would recommend some Jesus bandages. Meanwhile, the Greenbelt festival wants people to get naked for life drawing classes. I won't be doing this as it may be a little scary - however, not as scary as Curtis Glover's experience of post-modern church.
Have two music video links, starting with the first video on this blog post. It's worth the eight minutes and proves God really is a DJ. Unless of course you were at the decidedly ropey Aqua Bar on Friday when a bunch of Sanctus jivers went cheesy dancing. It ended in a police raid, but not before we were reduced to nostalgic wrecks. Check out this excellent site for 80s music videos, including such classics as, erm, Swing Out Sister and the London Boys.
Talking about videos, here is a hilarious guide on evangelising. I like the way we are encouraged to manipulate conversations so we can convince people they are a "lying, thieving, blasphemous adulterer". The bit with the banana about five minutes in is just a little unsettling if only for its truly fantastic logic.
Finally, a few Sanctonians went bowling this week. Which leaves me with this final link, a bowling game. Stick with it, it really is possible to score a strike, although please don't try this with real nuns. Or a real Pope.
