Adrian Warnock, of Adrian Warnock’s UK Evangelical Blog has just announced the recipients of his second “Warnie” awards and I am glad to say that one of those recipients is me. Adrian is the brain behind The Blogdom of God and is a man with his finger on the pulse of Christian blogging. Writing about himself in the third person, Adrian wrote the following: “When asked the reasons for his choice Adrian said “The 21st Century Reformation does a fantastic job of looking at how the church should look in 2005, and I have found absolutely no evidence that he is a neo-liberal. Tim is a man every writer should either dread, bribe or at least send a free book to. He is a tough but fair book reviewer who also finds time to write fantastic blog posts like his one on information overload earlier today. These two guys really ought to be read much more than they are currently.”
Adrian asked if I would make an acceptance speech so here goes:
I would like to thank the academy for the award and I’d also like to thank the kind and generous person (or people) that nominated me. I’d like to thank my mom and dad and wife and children and manager and promoter and director and supervisor and publicist and… Ah, what am I saying? Thanks to Adrian not just for the award, but for taking the time to encourage other bloggers who often endure more criticism than encouragement. I am thrilled just to have the opportunity to share my Christian walk with others, and to have other brothers and sisters in the Lord who allow me to share in theirs. It is my sincere hope and prayer that what we accomplish together as readers and writers, and above all, as ones privileged to be believers, brings glory to our Creator, Redeemer and Friend.
