My Blogroll is Up

Notice the Cranach blogroll below and to the right. This is a somewhat unique one, since it mostly consists of the blogs that are run by this site’s readers and commentors. If you are intrigued by someone’s comments, see if they have a blog and get more.

I also transferred MOST of the “community blogs” from the old site at WORLD. Again, some of the links were dead and some of the blogs were apparently discontinued, with no posts except from long ago. If you were on that roll and have an updated location, send it by putting up a comment on this post. Also, most of those sites have not updated their links to this new Cranach site! Let’s follow the Golden Rule here, folks, so link unto my site as I have linked unto you.

And I am aware that this roll is not complete. If you are a reader and want your blog included, post a comment with your link here and I’ll probably add you.

But also browse through these blogs. You are likely to find some you really like. Interestingly, they are not always about theology and culture, though many are. Some are about science, education, high-tech, and just life. That is to say, they are have to do with the doctrine of VOCATION.

  • Just wanted to say thanks very much for adding Casting Out Nines to the blogroll. Mine is a rather different blog than Cranach but I think you are right that they are both very much about vocation.

    Thanks for including my blog, Herr Dr. Veith! I very much appreciate it, and mayhaps it’ll serve as a kick in the pants for me to get back in a non-sporadic content-generation groove… ;^)

    Dr. Veith,

    Thought you might like this. My two boys, 5 and 3 are going through a stage where it they aren’t saying much that is constructive. At dinnertime, I’ve started a game called “Masks of God” with them, where I do riddles related to vocation. For example, last night I stumped them with “bus driver” with clues like “I visit the same places every day”, “my vehicle is rather large and long”, “lots of people drive with me sometimes”, etc. Usually, they get it after a few clues. Anyway, they love it. I think this is a great way to engage in constructive conversation and teach them about how God serves us through our neighbor. Anyways, I have you to thank for bringing to my attention the phrase “mask of God”.

  • Great, Nathan. You need to turn this into a board game, as in the vocation of Milton Bradley.

    Important question for all you fellow commentors/bloggers here.:

    Where would someone like me turn to, to ask searching questions about finer points of Lutheran Theology that I am stumped on, and where I would get answers that are from men and women who are committed to the Lutheran Confessions without reservation?

    Normally I would turn to my pastor, but my portuguese is not yet ready to carry the burden of that kind of conversation ( I am in Brasil guys!), and besides, my pastor is a faithful pastor in many ways, but I am not sure I would get the answers I seek when I see him doing the praise worship thing and having us recite a “roll-your-own” creed in place of the Nicean creed. (hope I am not breaking the 8th commandment here….).

    One of you here was really merciful to me and sent me a book of concord and a greek new testament, which have helped alot.

    I meet people weekly who have alot of questions and I worry terribly that I am telling them things that are not right doctrinally.

    help!

  • Veith,

    Now that you have this blog roll full of your favorites and those of your readers, I was wondering if you will you be adding them all to your favorite news reader and pulling from them ideas for discussion?

    fwsonnek,

    You may wish to look into http://bookofconcord.blogspot.com/ and the blogs of its authors.

    Also, if you don’t already, there’s an excellent radio program called Issues Etc. which covers many theological, cultural, political and social topics from a confessional Lutheran standpoint. They have many excellent guests and take calls and emails from listeners. The website is http://www.issuesetc.org and it is broadcast online at kfuoam.org They also have quite an extensive archive at kfuoam.org as well.

    I hope that helps.

  • Right, SimDan, I need to learn to use RSS feeds. And, Frank, a good resource for you may be “Ask the Pastor,” by Walter Snyder, which is listed in my blog roll under “Xrysostom.”

    Hey guys and gals here:

    thanks for the tips. I will use them!

    My questions aren´t just for me. often, in talking to others I note that i hit the SAME brick wall in my thinking that i don´t know how to get past. flaw in my own logic or presentation if you will. and I DO want to get it all right when its about more than just me. reading the confessions don´t always do it for me her, probably because I am not smart enough to bridge what those others are saying to what the confessions say.

    This is always this is what drives these sorts of theological questions because for my own part, as a Lutheran, I have the priviledge of being secure in my status before God in view of Jesus, even in the face of my many many shortcomings and defects.

    Consequently, I am freed to focus on very very important and deadly serious stuff like things that make me laugh, beauty, poetry, music, wine, food, literature, brasilian beaches, my work, and my relationships. I can leave everything in Jesus competent hands.

    Isn´t it way cool to be a Lutheran christian?

    thanks again guys.

    Doctor Veith,
    I am now a proud linker, as well.

    I don’t know if you remember me, but we met at the Highlands Study Center event with you, Ken Myers etc. and then we spoke after church meeting the next day. I am from West Virginia, and have one beautiful wife, Gina, and two little kids, whom you met.

    I was (and am) the aspiring author to whom you gave good advice and encouragement. I am happy to say that my first novel is now completed and I am pondering over my next step in the process.

    Thank you so much for the work you do through the gifts God has given you, and for inspiring us all through your words.

    The LORD bless you,
    Samuel
