The Blogdom of God

My meteroric rise through the Ecosystem thanks to a few links from a few blogs has got me thinking....What if a few great Christian blogs got together and determined that they would regularly link to each other. Not to fix the results of blog searches, but to highlight excelent quality blogging from throughout the Blogdom of God. What if these core blogs all agreed to post a set of links like the one in this post with suggested additions on their own blogs- a kind of Christian Blogdom hall … [Read more...]

An important day?

Although both Tamasin and Henry have both said sorry to Jesus for their sins before, tonight was slightly different. I asked Tamasin what you had to do to become a Christian. She answered that you had to thank Jesus for taking the blame for us, and say sorry to him for all your lies. I said that it wasn't just lies, but all naughty things, and she agreed. I then said you needed to ask Jesus to be the boss of your life- to be in charge. She said, but I haven't done that and immediately she … [Read more...]

Now I am an adorable rodent

My meteroric progress through the Ecosystem which as far as I can tell is driven entirely by the King of Blogs contest continues apace. I am now described as an adorable rodent. Does it matter?Well blog hits here certainly seem to be increasing rapidly also, so I suppose if I want people to actually read this drivell yes it does. But how many of these visitors actually read these posts rather than surfing on and how many of them actually like them, I guess I will never know! … [Read more...]

Praise from an opponent….

It is nice to find a complement from someone who has sworn to try and fix a vote against me (due he says to nothing personal, just his alliance with one of my opponents in the Blog war) So, is Hugh Hewitt just trying to soften the blow when he describes me in his blog as "Very smart and refreshingly candid about his faith."Gee thanks Hugh, I feel better already for the over 100 people you have sent over to the contest specifically with the view for them to vote for one of my opponents without … [Read more...]

Martin Luther King – the autobiography

I also put together some quote from Does the future have a church? a book by Terry VirgoSo here goes with an overdue post of excepts from the MLK autobiography which I would commend as a good read. More quotes, … [Read more...]
