You may find useful these templates for badges with a central cross and text "Follower of The Way" designed to be cut out (six to an A4 page) and using outlines so that they can be decorated individually if wished. This is for the Through the Season object (see page 4 of Issue 3) for Sunday 4 March 2012. Download Follower-of-the-Way-Badges.pdf
A few folks have reported they have had issues when purchasing Spill the Beans. We have tried to make this as simple as possible, but no system is perfect so our apologies for any hiccups along the way.
1. I can't see all the page when the payment window opens up.
If this happens to you, we think it is a browser compatibility issue, but even though there are no scroll bars that allow you to move around all the page and thus see and submit your details, you should still be able to click onto the text in the page and then drag the mouse down and to the right revealing the rest of the page. This seems only to be a problem a handful of folks have experienced, but there is a way around it!
2. Why did I not receive a download link? (READ THIS BEFORE PURCHASING)
Please see the images below. After you have made your purchase in PayPal a window like the first one will appear. It is essential that at this point you click on the yellow "RETURN TO MERCHANT" button. If you simply close the window then you will not receive your download link. When you click on this you come back out of PayPal and to our download site where you will get a screen like the one at the bottom which shows you how much time you have left to download, and gives you the link you need to access the file.
It is our hope and prayer that all of you are finding the Spill the Beans material useful in the life of your congregation.
We are aware that whilst most people are happy to work from the digital copy and make copies themselves there are some for whom this proves difficult. To that end you can order hard copies of the resource. Issue 3 is available at a cost of £15 per copy plus postage and packing. Each issue is in full colour and comb bound for ease of use.
If you would like to order copies (which are all printed to order so there may be a few days to wait before you receive yours) then you can email firstname.lastname@example.org with your order details. An invoice will be issued after dispatch of your order. If you prefer you can contact Greyfriars Church Office on 01555 661510 and place your order over the phone.
Folks, you need to hold your breath no longer. The biggest edition of Spill the Beans yet has this minute been published and is ready for your downloading. It is packed with material for the whole season of Lent and Easter and Holy Week. Every day of Holy Week is covered and there is a fantastic Labyrinth too with all the crib sheets and beautifully designed information sheets too. It's a gift at only £12 for a download. Thereafter you can photocopy it as often as you like for the rest of your worship and education teams. However if you want a hard copy we've had to put the price up to £15 as it is such a big edition. But it is still a bargain.
We pilgrimage through Lent and dance through Easter taking a new risk in the latter season using an epistle as the focus readings. As Spill is all about story it has been a challenge to make First John story-like but we've done out best. We'd be interested to hear from you. We know it is not perfect but it is there for ideas and to whet your appetite and I guarantee it will do that. Enjoy!
If you'd like to taste and see before you feast on the whole thing you can download a sample Here.
And a massive thanks to the writers and especially Peter who pulled it all together and made it look so good. He's our chief angel.
A wee update on Issue 3 of Spill the Beans which will journey with you through Lent, Easter and to Pentecost. It is almost there! The last few weeks are being edited at the moment, and the issue should be spilling beans across your computer screen by the end of the week...
