Confessional Lutheran theology, hagiography, philosophy, music, culture, sports, education,
and whatever else is on the fevered mind of Orycteropus Afer
It's a BBOV Heat Wave
The Big Blogroll O' Vark®™© Serves Up Some Hot New MembersStar Date 1024.780:
By hook or by crook, your humble Aardvark boldly goes forth, seeking out new blogforms and new unsettlizations. By suggestion and serendipity, eight new entries have been enrolled. Sadly, I also dropped one whose owner chose to explore and develop other online venues.
I also have a few others that I'm watching for current activity. Their content is good but not particularly recent.
I continue to keep an eye out on Networked Blogs
and welcome suggestions from others in order to discover and add more listings to the confessional Lutheran blogosphere.
If you're not sure what to make of the BBOV
or wonder about the benefits of being listed and of listing others' blogs, please read the first three links under Aurous Effluence
in the sidebar. Those who'd like the Big Blogroll O' Vark®™©
can either email me
or copy the list from the Alley's source code (click View | Page Source
in Firefox or View | Source
in Internet Explorer).
If you enjoy this blog, especially if you're listed or would like to be added to the Aardvark family, you can let me know via blog comment or through my Facebook page
. If you friend me, please attach a note telling me if you are a current or prospective member of the BBOV
. And when you find things you like through the Alley, please leave a comment to that effect with the blog owners.CONFESSIONAL LUTHERAN BLOGSEight Blogs (not Eight Balls)
Our first new entry shouldn't be a stranger to many of you, especially since they've already rattled off 146 programs. So how 'bout a hearty welcome to Pastors Bill Cwirla and Craig Donofrio, better known by people with too much time on their hands as The God Whisperers
If you like to read others' sermons, the BBOV
already offers several good sources. To these we add Pastor Jason Harris's aptly titled LCMS One Year Sermons
. Here, Pastor Harris uploads the manuscripts of his sermons preached on the One Year Lectionary cycle.The Parental Office
is a difficult, time-consuming, emotion-filled vocation — certainly no place for wimps. Two definite non-wimps, Joshua McNary and Brian Yamabe, do all they can to promote Christ-centered, Biblically normed, Catechism-based advice and encouragement. Even those not raising young children will find much to commend the site to themselves.
Chris and Janine are The Plugers
, a husband and wife team preparing to go to Zambia with Lutheran Bible Translators
. Stay with them as they point toward their 23 August departure date and head out in order to render God's Word in the tongue of another people who need to know Jesus as their Savior.
They're not all priestly, nor are they all rants. However, the writings of Pastor Ken Kelly are gathered at Priestly Rants
. Whether he's banging his head against a wall or pouring out Jesus by the bucket, Pastor Kelly is worth the read.Res publica
loosely translates as "public matter" or "public issue." Respublica
is Diane Meyer's take on the affairs of our republic, as well as matters regional, churchly, and personal. Centered in St. Louis and the Metro East, the blog includes politics, seminary affairs, and finding a way to Ted Drewes
through road construction.
He was a seminarist. Now he's Deacon Schroeder
. While living in Wisconsin, Josh writes about "theology, languages, mercy, liturgy, and more," including his intended return to complete his seminary studies.
Finally, we introduce Witness, Mercy, Life Together
, a collective effort of President Matt Harrison and some of the officers and executive staff of The Lutheran Church — Missouri Synod
. Join them "as they tell the stories of their lives, vocations and the work of the Synod through the lens of 'Witness, Mercy, Life Together.'"So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish Theology
We'll assume that Norman Teigen still has his demesne. However, he no longer has Norman's Demsene
. A few weeks ago, he posted that he was getting out of blogging. If you miss him, you can still find Norman on Facebook
For all those enrolled in the BBOV
, links back are certainly appreciated. And don't forget that all
of those listed benefit when you use the entire blogroll. Also, if you'd like to graphically point to the Alley and the Big Blogroll O' Vark®™©
, you may use the above design from St. Charles the Illuminous or one of these blog buttons:
Each of these buttons measures 80x15 pixels. Should you choose to use one, please link back to either the main Aardvark Alley URL or else to the post What Is the BBOV
Finally, if you own or know of a Lutheran blog demonstrating a quia
confessional subscription and would like me to consider it for inclusion, please leave a comment. And again, for more information about why this stuff benefits confessional Lutheran blogging, morality, and other worthwhile endeavors, please check out the first three links under Aurous Effluence
in the sidebar.
