Give Thanks for the BBOV
... for It Occasionally Gets Updated
Yep, boys and girls, 'tis time for a much-needed makeover to the Big Blogroll O' Vark®™© so here are a baker's dozen
additions, four name or URL changes, and ten deletions for a variety of reasons.
To find out more about the BBOV, please read What Is the BBOV?
and Building a Lutheran Presence; Part 2
. Those who'd like the Big Blogroll O' Vark®™© can either email me
or read BBOV Changes
for details on obtaining the list from the Alley's source code.Howdy
Here, alphabetically by height, are our new additions to the Confessional Lutheran list:Chaplain to the World
— He says, "The author is an LC-MS
clergyman who serves as an Assistant Pastor; and as a fire department, and law enforcement chaplain. He's often called upon, it seems, to be chaplain to the world, thus the name."Euchrestos
, a PhD student, takes his name from Paul's comments about Mark in 2 Timothy 4:11
Pastor Mark Sell launched Friends of Mercy
to assist the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Kenya
in helping AIDS Orphans and young girls who flee Female Genital Cutting
.Garden of Gethsemane
is Pastor Brett Cornelius' labor of love.
If he were a movie, I'd probably give General Scuttlebutt
a PG-13 rating. There's plenty of satire and other humor, but be forewarned — it's not for everyone.
"Daughter of the Almighty. Air Force Wife. Homeschooling Mommy of 2." Living in Canaan
is one of the new family oriented confessional blogs.
As if Pastor Chryst wasn't already busy enough with his other efforts (see Preachrblog
and The Lutheran Blog Directory
) ... he's now running Lutheran Survivor
, pitting famous and infamous Lutherans against each other and having readers vote 'em off the blog.
It looks like The Markel Family
has gotten the hang of this blogging thing. They've even already taken a turn hosting the Lutheran Carnival
got married. Now they've married their blogs. Random Intolerance
is the result.
Why does this Wisconsin woman call her site Susan's Pendulum
? She says, "Swinging from one extreme to the other, either busy or vegging, orderly or cluttered, meals par excellence or insta-food, schoolwork all day or not at all. Good thing my husband is well-balanced."These Curious Minds
belong to Maria and her cohorts Karissa, Rick, Marie, Lyn, and Lizzie.
One pastor, Three Taverns
— I think that Pastor Paul Willweber is on to something big with his "place to sit down and talk theology."
Finally, here's the "baker" for my "dozen." Since he belongs to the ELCA, about which I doubt the corporate confession, I'm listing Pastor David Hansen's Postings from Prairie Hill
among the "Other Blogs." He's still a darned good read.The More Things Change ...
Please make the necessary name or URL changes for these fine folk:
First of all, The Augsburg Aggregator
has a new domain. However, you still might want to visit the old "dot org" — there, David Bickel focuses on Theology of the Cross: The Faith Luther Confessed
The Life of Michael
keeps the same name but changes the URL from his Vox location
Meanwhile, David Yow
keeps the URL but changes the name to Original Evangelical
(you know, as in Lutheran
Finally, David Bickel's old Dawning Realm
underwent name and URL changes and a stylistic face lift and emerged as Theologia Crucis
"Now it's time to say good-bye ...." These people have either shut down their sites, avoided posting for a long
time, or, in the case of John Fenton, left Lutheranism. Therefore, they can be deleted from your confessional Lutheran listings: Beggars All
(gone and greatly lamented) Conversi ad Dominum
(gone to Constantinople) Cruising Down the Coast of the High Barbaree
(real life intruded) Drowning Myself Whenever I Can
(gone) Essential Theology for Laity
(gone) Hot Under the Collar
(1 year without posts) Masks of God
(gone) Soldiers of the Cross
(gone) The Spirit Is Willing; the Flesh Is Weak
(real life intrudes) Tail Feathers and All
Thus far another round of Aardvark Updates
. Again, if you'd like just the confessional Lutheran bloggers or all the links in my sidebar, please click for the Big Blogroll O' Vark®™©
and tell me which list you'd prefer. Or do as Pastor Chryst suggests and grab it all for yourself by simply copying the source code. And if you know of or own a Lutheran blog demonstrating a quia
confessional subscription and would like me to consider it for inclusion, please leave me a comment.
