King For A Week – WOTM Radio

King for a Week is an honor I bestow on blogs that I feel are making a valuable contribution to my faith and the faith of other believers. Every week (or so) I select a blog, link to it from my site, and add that site’s most recent headlines to the sidebar on this site. While this is really not much, I do feel that it allows me to encourage and support other bloggers while making my readers aware of …

A La Carte (07/20)

Thursday July 20, 2006 Creation: Over at her very pretty “Sprittibee” blog, Sprittibee has taken on the subject of creation and evolution and this has (as we might expect) generated some buzz. (Buzz, get it?). You can check it out here. Conference: Bob Kauflin has listed his “Top Ten Reasons to Register Now for the WorshipGod06 Conference.” Coming in at number 4 is “Christian blogger extraordinaire Tim Challies will be live-blogging the conference. Although Tim would confess he’s not a …

The Nature of Blogging

I have been chipping away at this post for two weeks. And in reality I have been thinking about it for far longer than that. And yet what I bring you today is really quite pathetic. I have been unable to formulate clear, biblical wisdom on this topic. And so I am going to present it to you regardless, hoping that your input and discussion will be able to make plain what is still cloudy. I often receive questions from …

Book Review – An Army of Davids

When I was younger, I had a friend who seemed to live somewhere in a grey area between reality and fantasy. He was able to deal with reality for periods, but would always slip back into strange little fantasies where he was a ninja or an elf warrior or something else equally strange. He and I would go to the park to practice golfing, but inevitably the golf club in his hand would become a sword and he would want …

Accountability Through Visibility

Immediately prior to the Together for the Gospel Conference, I had the opportunity to be part of a panel discussing issues pertaining to blogging. In the days following I mentioned on my blog that, due to the brevity of the occasion, I did not have the chance to address some of the “soapbox” issues pertaining to blogging in general and Christian blogging in particular. A couple of people have since asked me if I would consider writing about these issues …

Allegations of Retirement – Challies Denies All

This weekend, the blogosphere, or the small corner of it that exists in Oakville, Ontario, was rocked with the allegations that Tim Challies has retired from the blogosphere. It began with an article posted on Saturday by Pastor Shaun in which he announced Challies’ retirement: “In a move nearly as upsetting as the announcement of Al Mohler’s ghost writing team, and nearly as threatening to the future stability of the Christian blogosphere, Tim Challies, web designer and blogger at Challies.com, …

A La Carte (01/25)

Wednesday January 25, 2005 Design: Mike Bryant (known in the forums around here as mikbry24) has a new blog which was designed by yours truly. Take a look deep inside the The Mind of Mike. Blogging: Phil Johnson has now retired from blogging. Sort of. He has decided to begin a sort of group blog. As if one Centuri0n presence on the web isn’t enough! Still, at least we can still look forward to the occasional post from Phil. Canadiana: …
