The BBOV: Quasimodoblogiti
The Big Blogroll O' Vark®™©
Yes, I played around with the ancient title of this Sunday in the Christian Year. No, I don't think that I'm going to be struck by lightning because of it. (In case you didn't know, Quasimodogeniti
, "Like newborn babes," is the opening of the traditional introit for the Second Sunday of Easter, the conclusion of the Easter Octave.)
Thanks to those whose six newborn, new-found, or newly repurposed blogs were told to me via comments here or on Facebook. I also continue to keep an eye out on Networked Blogs
in order to discover more Lutheran blogging.
Of course, in this fallen world, life involves change and ends in death. And while I have no reports of deceased blogs, two previously listed sites are being dropped. One became congregation-specific, the other now focuses on the owner's family. However, each of these has been superseded by one of the new BBOV entries.
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

and invites you to join in their study.
According to Luther and his followers, The First Premise
for being considered a true Christian theologian is comprehending the revealed and manifest things of God seen through suffering and the cross. Pastor Donavon Riley is, without a doubt, a true Christian theologian.
Joe Greene, SSP is still studying to be The Lutheran Deacon
of his blog's title. He uses this form to discuss and chronicle his in-parish studies toward this office.
Step into Sola Fide
— Faith Alone — is Paul Smith's "musings, mostly about my battles with God and my religion." If honesty is your cup of tea, all I need ask you is, "One lump, or two?"
Emily Cook knows that she's Weak and Loved
. She moved her other blog in a direction familial and started over in order to engage the outside world as "a mother, a sinner, a child, covered in the blood of Christ, rejoicing in His daily gifts."Dropped but not Dead
Pastor David Hansen has decided to let Postings from Prairie Hill
focus on his Texas Hill Country congregation's activities and needs. He'll reach out to the wider world through Called to Passion
