Easter Resources, Heated Debates, and other links.

Dave Walkers blog has a new home: the Church Times have snapped him up. I wonder what he'll do if St. Stephen the Great Charitable Trust buy out the Church Times? (sorry, in-joke for readers of Dave's blog). He now (a little confusingly) has two main blogs, as well as the justifiably famous Dullest Blog in the World.

The UN are calling for the disestablishment of the Church of England. Pardon my French, but what the Hades has it got to do with them? The first comment pretty much says it all.

Worship Changes Lives is a new booklet from the CofE on, would you believe it, worship. It's 48 pages long, and sounds like it's more of a practical 'how to' volume than a theological tome. It's all part of Transforming Worship, an Anglican resource hub which I must admit I've not looked at very much so far, and really should explore some more. From the blurb it sounds very good, I may have to get a copy.

If you want a good argument and don't fancy the Resurrection debate (see yesterdays post), then you could always have a go at the Passion forums, relating to the Beebs new Passion production for Easter week.

CMS have a free Easter resource which you can download here. It's 60 pages, with ideas for workshops and pre- and post- Easter assemblies. There's also several photos with re-enactments of scenes from holy week involving children: a novel approach and quite powerful.

On the subject of Easter ideas, Barnabas in Churches is often my first point of call, and once again they have a good seasonal section.
