I don’t often receive (or give) blogger awards, but when you get the same award from two different bloggers in the same week (in this case, Jay’s Musik Blog and The Brick Buster – thanks, guys!) you are compelled to participate!
I could simply make a list of those who regularly participate in the Word for Wednesday meme because they think about and share the Son’s light and there’s nothing more “Sonshiney” than that. But as they’re already listed in the sidebar, I’ve decided to list other blogs that I regularly visit. Here are some of my haunts:
Disloyal Opposition - JD Tuccille writes mostly about libertarian issues, always with a thought-provoking angle. He lives in Arizona, and has added his first-hand viewpoint to the immigration debates.
Herescope – A few years ago, I met some of the authors of this blog, which monitors the heresies invading the church in our age. These are lovely people, watchmen on the wall, who research and document some incredibly difficult-to-stomach material, day after day, year after year. Their motivation to persevere is always the hope that fellow Christians will be delivered from the deception of this age.
Sola Sisters This is a blog by two Christian sisters who stand, as the name indicates, on the rallying cry of the Reformation: Sola Fide (by faith alone), Sola Scriptura (by Scripture alone), Sola Gratia (by grace alone), Solus Christus (through Christ alone), Soli Deo Gloria (to God alone be the glory). While I don’t often agree with their Calvinistic viewpoint, it usually challenges me to re-examine my own position on various issues. This post about God’s judgment, with a video by John MacArthur, is a real thought-provoker.
Brainbiter Dave writes about many sacred cows, often with a Christian viewpoint, always with an acerbic tongue. Worth a visit.
Northview Diary This is my neighbor across the river, a farm wife who writes consistently about dairy farming in general, and her life in particular. She always responds to comments, and often posts great photos. Check her out.
Chicken Tracks, Etc. Sara is another farming woman who keeps us abreast of the struggles dairy farmers are dealing with today. She does great photos, too, but you should especially check out the one of her goat, Phoenix – which I named! Woohoo!
The Chestnut Tree Cafe While Jim is a regular in the WFW meme, his other posts are usually political commentary. He’s not often kind to the beltway shills, but he’s always honest, and usually zooms right in to the heart of the issue. He often leaves me thinking, “I wish I’d written that.”
The Older Geek Rebecca is another who participates in the WFW meme, but at this particular blog she shares her hard-earned knowledge of all things blogging. She often writes posts about things I’ve thought, “Gee, I wonder how/if I could do that.” And if she hasn’t already written it, let her know, and she will – a very helpful lady.
Pro Libertate “Observations and commentary from a Christian libertarian perspective, written by a freedom-obsessed father of six children and husband to one exquisitely lovely wife.” William Grigg takes the issues of the day and digs in deep. He often expresses the things that I just think about.
Pro Life Blogs This is where I keep track of the political climate on abortion efforts. I don’t miss much.
LibertarianChristians.com This is a relatively new blog by Norman Horn, who rationally addresses the issues of the day. Check out this post about gay marriage – it’s not what you would expect from an American Christian.
And that’s only part of my list. No wonder I spend so much time on the computer!
