Blogs of the Week

Maybe one of the best weeks ever for me in reading other blogs. (It didn’t hurt that I got my book on prayer done and feel less pressured to keep grinding away.)
1. I want to suggest you look at Karen Spears Zacharias blogsite. She is the author of Hero Mama, which is featured a bit in Embracing Grace. She is an author who tells the story of surviving in a family decimated when her father was killed in Vietnam. She is an advocate for family victims of war. Her blog is full of story-telling. This one especially, called collateral damage.
2. Jim Martin’s 10 characteristics of a gracious person and reasons to have fun in life.
3. Jamie Arpin-Ricci’s story of his journey and how his life has anticipated the emerging movement. Part two.
4. My son, Lukas, has put up some pretty nice blogs, but I really like the images he’s able to post in this one: The Warrior-King. And his new blog on “the (missed) call” at the White Sox game is worth reading — esp because he was a catcher himself.
5. Perhaps the most useful thing I’ve seen is the biblical curse generator (HT: Dave Anderson). You got an enemy? Now you’ve got something to say to them when your guards are down.
6. Lightning and Sara’s posts about making room(s) for prayer.

    Scot:
    Thanks for the plug for the blog. Tough stuff. Got another call from a VN war widow yesterday who told me she’s been struggling with depression.
    Wanted to let you know that Frank and I are both planning on attending the event in Seattle. And congrads on JC being named book of the year by CT!!!

    Hey Scot,
    Thanks for the shout out. Not sure if you received my email, but the books arrived. I am deeply grateful. I have had many very late nights reading. Congrats on the book of the year! It is well deserved. I have little doubt that Embracing Grace will join it.
    Peace,
    Jamie

    Jamie,
    Thanks. Now you can be the first to blog it.
    And what is a “shout out”?

  • http://www.emergentvoyageurs.blog.com Jamie Arpin-Ricci

    LOL! Sorry about the lingo. According to the Urban Dictionary, a shout out is:
    To acknowledge someone. To make ones presence known.
    “I gave my girls a shout out at the party.”
    I am already working on a blog to review Embracing Grace. Thanks again!
    Peace,
    Jamie

    Since the subject of lingo has come up . . .
    A “blog” is the site on which a blogger blogs.
    The individual articles appearing on a blog are “posts.”
    Love your site, by the way, Professor.

    Well, Jared, someone said this to me aeons ago (in blog time) and I’ve watched it, and I don’t see the uniformity there: I try to use posts, but a “blog” is often used as an individual post on a blogsite.
    I was good about this for a long time, but I’m starting to use it as it is being used.

  • http://www.thinklings.org/jared Jared

    Hmm. I’ve never in my three years of blogging seen “blogs” used for the individual articles (posts) on a site except by beginners. I am under the impression, and of course could be wrong, that the general consensus in the blogosphere is that a blog is the weblog site and the things posted in a blog are posts. Much like entries in a journal aren’t called “journals.”
    But, hey, I’ll admit the lingo is an ever-morphing thing . . . ;-)
