Superior Scribbler Award from Kirkepiscatoid: Gracias!!
Kirkepiscatoid was kind enough to award me the "Superior Scribbler" award back in November, and I was pretty lame to not acknoledge it and pass it along to my five nominees. I think she caught me in a "end of term," "getting ready for dozens of Advent services" kind of time, so at long last, Gracias to Kirkepiscatoid!
The guidelines as to how each ¨Scribbler¨ must, in turn, pass the Award on are as follows:
The Award may be passed on to FIVE deserving Bloggers (my choice).
Each Superior Scribbler must in turn pass The Award on to 5 most-deserving Bloggy Friends.
Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author & the name of the blog from whom he/she has received the award.
The envelopes please....
The winners are...
Steve, at draught-ing theology, has a great blog in which he reflects on the Sunday lectionary readings, comments deeply and intelligently about the Church, about the Episcopal Church as well as the Emerging Church. Steve is a priest in Alabama who spends time each week doing "draught-ing" theology -- that is -- discussing theology and such things in a local watering hole. Beyond all of these things, Steve is a great priest and a respected leader in our church. I read his blog daily, and feel blessed to call him one of my friends.

John, at "Reverend John's Spot," is another wonderful priest in our church who blogs daily (yes, I said DAILY) about the daily readings in the "Daily Office" - the readings of Morning and Evening Prayer from our Book of Common Prayer. John is intelligent, an insightful commenter, and is a deeply spiritual (and fun), person, and all of these qualities come through in his writing. He is a priest in our nation's capitol, and is doing wonderful things. His blog pops up daily for me, and I enjoy it a great deal.

Caminante, no hay camino, is a blog written by a priest in my home state of Vermont who has recently moved to a new church in the central-Southern part of the state. The priest is extremely well-versed in the goings on of our church as well as of the goings-on in the Anglican Communion. However, these "large" issues do not take the forefront in this blog, more often the writer tends to focus on the way the Spriit is at work in the lives of the people of the parish, and of the everyday struggles and blessings that are our lives.

The Five Dollars and Some Common Sense, is a blog written by a Ellen Painter Dollar, a wonderful writer who is a mom and a thinker, and a person of great Faith. She reflects on the life of her family, on being a mom, as well as issues of disability. She is a great writer, and has many insightful observations about "everyday" life. As a fellow parent, I really enjoy reading her stuff, and I know that you will too!
Check out her great blog!
Communion in Conflict, is a great blog written by Nathan Humphrey. He is an extremly intelligent priest in the Episcopal Church who is a wonderful theologian and scholar of Anglican Ecclesiology (theology of the "church"). He is wonderfully well-read in the major schools of ecclesiology and has found a pathway between and through these various "camps" and has begun to formulate his own views of an Ecclesiology based in a Communion in Conflict. I read his work with great interest, especially after my own forays into a construction of what I termed a "Dynamic Ecclesiology of Communion." Fr. Humphrey has an important voice in these conversations and I encourage anyone who cares about our Anglican Communion to read his work.
