Michelle Malkin has some more on the lesser attention seemingly being paid to this anniversary too.
Want to write a successful blog? Joe at Evangelical Outpost offered this advice a while back, and it's worth looking at again. I still have lots to learn!
Rev Ed is hosting the 99th Christian Carnival this week, and has done a great job organizing the theme around the number 99. There aren't 99 entries, but the ones that are there look good. Early favorites include:
- Matt Jones talks about something that's apparently a growing trend: churches cancelling Christmas services. Of all the ridiculous...anyway, hopefully other churches thinking of this will reconsider.
- Alex Jordan talks about how churches too often have a misguided sense of excellence. Instead of focusing on making disciples, they measure excellence in the world's terms instead of God's. I'm starting to see a trend in these first two recommended posts, and it doesn't bode well for the American church if such behavior isn't reined in. We need a revival.
- I found the wife Micah Girl commends to her son, and I hope to raise two more of them.
Check out the rest of the posts too. Good stuff all around.
