Round the Sphere Again



  • This week's Christian Carnival is up at Semicolon. Her chosen theme is Ephesians 6. You'll be busy over there for a while because there are lots of entries this week.

  • Catez of Allthing2all is putting together a collection of posts on the situation in Darfur.
    The mainstream media have shown little interest in the Darfur situation even though it is the worst humanitarian crisis currently taking place in the world. One object of collecting posts together is to help bring information to people who will not hear of this through the media. Another object is to possibly get the media to realise that people do in fact want to hear about this....

    I am inviting submissions for The Darfur Collection, which is open to ALL bloggers, and which may be on any aspect of the Darfur situation. For example, the posts may be on the genocide, the refugee camps, the current food situation, the UN's role, the minimal international response, ways to help, your opinion, and so on. You may find eye-witness accounts which you wish to post and/or comment on.
    The deadline for submissions is midnight EST, Sunday 15 May. Click on the link above for more detailed information on how and what to enter.

  • Dead Man Blogging has two posts on Calvinism:
    1. Why Bother with Calvinism?
    2. God is Sovereign Over Creation
    I think he has more post planned on this subject, so if this interests you, you'll want to check back in the upcoming weeks for more.

  • There are more post in the series on the Lord's Supper at Real Clear Theology Eric is supporting the idea that the primary purpose of celebrating the Lord's Supper is to sound a plea for the second coming. I think you'll find it to be a very interesting series of posts.

  • Tim Challies reviews a books by one of my favorite living authors: Book Review - The Difficult Doctrine of the Love of God.
    It is rare to find so much depth in such a short book. At the same time it is also nice to be able to learn so much without having to wade through hundreds of pages of text - this book could as easily have been hundreds or thousands of pages long. Carson does a wonderful job of highlighting the most important issues while confining himself to a limited word count. I highly recommend this book.

    Sounds like I might have to order me one.

  • All you crazy word lovers will like this: A list of phobias, A-Z. Hat tip: The Thinklings.

  • And in more news for crazy word lovers: There are recent additions to our Words We Love List, and I'll be adding even more new words to the list later today (I hope). I love these interactive posts!
