Welcome to the dozenth (?) edition of the Friday Five! Hope you had a great Saint Patrick’s day and first day of spring this past week. Here’s some fun stuff that I hope you find interesting!
1). 15 Fun Facts about Saint Patrick’s Day. In honor of my heritage (well, mostly my skin and hair color), here’s some fun stuff you might not have known about March 17th: http://mentalfloss.com/article/55599/15-delightful-facts-about-saint-patricks-day?bypass=1
2). Uncle Saul playing Candy Crush. Homeland is one of my favorite shows and Saul is my favorite character on it. We call him “Uncle Saul” because he’s just so awesome, I kind of wish he was my uncle. Check out this clip of him teaching Jimmy Fallon how to play candy crush.
3). 5 Sermon Illustrations to Retire. Great article from Relevant Magazine by Sammy Rhodes on some somewhat over-used (to put it mildly) illustrative tools that pastors need to pack away in the attic and find something fresher to us. http://www.relevantmagazine.com/god/church/5-sermon-clich%C3%A9s-retire
4). Key and Peele Make Fun of Everything. Keegan Michael Key and Jordan Peele are two of my favorite comedians. Their show on Comedy Central is hilarious and very well done. Here’s an interesting article from Time where they talk about humor in a world of politically correctness. http://time.com/22993/key-and-peele-make-fun-of-everything/
5). 18 Things Creative People Do Differently. If you’re a creative person or happen to live/work/know one, this article from Huffington Post will give you some insight. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/03/04/creativity-habits_n_4859769.html?utm_hp_ref=tw
