Thought 1: What to talk about today?
So, it’s Tuesday, what does that mean? Not knowing the Easter timeline all that well, I was very pleased to spot this Holy Week Timeline via someone’s Twitter account, and blogged about it earlier today on BigBible.
According to the timeline above, we’re onto the withered fig tree, but EasterLive gives us a clear outline for the stories that we are looking at.
Thought 2: Tom Wright: The Parables
So, Tom Wright has talked to us about the Tenants in the Vineyard:
and in week 4, it was all about parables!
Thought 3: What has everyone else been talking about?
EasterLive have given us clickable options to what others have been talking about (I am assuming across the whole hashtag, rather than just for today):
Ah no, I just clicked, it’s not doing a tag cloud, it has given a list of pre-suggested words (so #Easterlive tweeters, get using them), as there’s a couple that are empty if you click through into them.
Thought 4: Arguments
Do arguments have to difficult, harsh, etc.? I googled ‘Postive Argument’, which may be some kind of scientific term, but I liked The Happiness Project outline of how to positively contribute to arguments..
There’s so many things we could follow around the web, but I’m off to meet with Huw, the imaginative person behind EasterLive, to celebrate his upcoming birthday…
