Blogroll

As I construct my new site for this blog, it’s time to work on the blogroll. Many of the blogs I listed on the old World site no longer exist or are no longer active. This is my chance to bring everything up to date.

In particular, I would like to list the blogs of people who regularly comment here on Cranach. That way, readers are intrigued, for example, by tODD’s combination of confessional Lutheranism with relatively liberal politics, or Lars Walker’s literary reflections, they could go to their blogs for more. Bruce has a new blog that I like to visit. (Then there is Frank Sonnek. We urgently need a blog from him!)

My software keeps track of sites that link here. If you have a blog and link to Cranach’s new address, I’ll know, and then I’ll link to you. Assuming, of course, your blog is appropriate.(Since this Cranach blog is at a new address, www.geneveith.com, it’s important that you update your link to it, just as I need to update my links to you.)

As you may know, the number of links a blog has affects how soon it comes up on Google and so attracts more readers. Let’s help each other out here.

About Gene Veith

Professor of Literature at Patrick Henry College, the Director of the Cranach Institute at Concordia Theological Seminary, a columnist for World Magazine and TableTalk, and the author of 18 books on different facets of Christianity & Culture.

    I misspelled your new URL, but fixed it today! Clumsy fingers. :-(

    BTW Do you get Lutheran Forum? My statue will be on the next cover. I hate to be so bold about it, but we artists starve to death if we don’t toot our own horns, or hire someone to toot it for us. My studio is too broke to hire someone. (Hmmm… promote bodly?)

    Pray for me and the struggling Lutheran Churches here in Brasil.

    We crank out 100 new lutheran pastors here every year. Few receive calls. most get “contracts” to congregations for a couple years if they are lucky and not a Divine Call (yeah that sucks and looks wrong I know. we got all that from you all up there. You sneeze and we catch cold…). Most speak english and can learn spanish in days… The minimum wage here is $320 a month. They wouldn´t need alot of money to serve. Most men are single when they leave the sem.

    Wouldn´t it be cool to have them serve as missionaries for a couple years under the likes of the Paul MCains, Cwirlas, Ericksons, Weedons, (the list goes on and on….) and other fearless lions in the faith we have to catch a vision of what it all could look like? And then send them BACK to us!

    We need to xerox some of you guys back there. It could not happen too soon.

    Now for a screed:

    And , by the way, we need to “de-professionalize” our clergy by the way. Vocation. Not profession, with salary scales based on level of education and experience is what i am talking about.

    We need more Kenneth Korbys who ASKED to be placed in a “dying” inner city church.

    Those reasonable and fair sounding salary and benefits schedules work only with a highly centralized and controlled national organization that can then redistribute income from the wealthier congregations to the poorer ones, where calls start to look like contracts.

    CPA types like me then become the tail that wags the dog. It all looks so structured and good. It is, I would suggest satanic. darkness dressed up as light.

    How does that relate to a poor slum here in brasil where a experienced pastor is what is needed but the standard of living can´t support a professionalized version of that (experience pastor)? 95% of brasilians live in poverty here… No wonder that the Lutheran church is strong in the comfortable, white solidly middle class, south of brasil.

    In the states, often the poorest and emerging parts of the church need the MOST experienced men, and those all go to the older established churches, and the poor churches get poorly trained lay ministers or …..

    Maybe the creative solution here and in the states is for the Synod always to do “church extension” mediately THROUGH a larger more established mother church and not directly, even if that extension was a hundred miles from the nearest mother church. Probably would not happen though because that would give the central office less power.

    Attention to these “wordly” structural details are probably already happening knowing some of the guys I know in the LC-MS, unawares to me. It could not happen too soon.

    I don’t have a blogroll right now, but when I overhaul my blog (being the masochistic type, I have written my blogging software by hand) and make one, GeneVeith.com will be on it.
