Media Review: Badvent Calendar

BadventThe good people at Ship of Fools came up with a wizard wheeze this year – a ‘Badvent’ calendar competition. (It’s a bad Advent calendar, see what they did there.)

It was great, and some of us even voted. The smallVOICE team review it (and the wider Ship of Fools website) in our December podcast.

Ship of Fools got some good publicity for the competition including here in The Huffington Post.

For further background info, see their ‘Ship of Fools in 300 Words’ from which we shamelessly plunder:

“Ship of Fools was first launched in 1977 as a studenty print magazine, but sank in 1983 after ten issues. It was raised again on April Fool’s Day 1998 as a website, and quickly grew into an online community as well as a webzine.

“We’re here for people who prefer their religion disorganized,” says the Ship’s editor and designer, Simon Jenkins. “Our aim is to help Christians be self-critical and honest about the failings of Christianity, as we believe honesty can only strengthen faith.”
