Lutheran Carnival III and Beyond
The Lutheran Carnival this week is on display at Intolerant Elle. Think of it as an electronic potluck dinner, where you can sample a little bit of this, a little bit of that.
Next week, the Carnival moves to Aardvark Alley. Should you be considering a submission, check out what Orycteropus suggests about a Vocation theme for Labor Day.
I would like to expand upon this a bit: Lutherans are among those rare few who realize that even when we talk of “ships and sails and sealing wax, of cabbages and kings,” we also are talking theology. While I’m pretty sure that there will be plenty of theologizing from blogging pastors I’d be interested not only in lay theological perspectives about jobs, careers, marriage, and other vocational areas, but also reading some of the “daily grind.” Many of the bloggers I read, including Love and Blunder, Kiihnworld, and Pastor Steve Billings let me see much of their hearts and their theology through windows opened into the “ordinary” in their lives.
So even if you do not have a detailed Scriptural and confessional analysis of the “Godliness” of your vocation, the simple act of revealing yourself in the midst of ordinary life bespeaks a wonderful vocational message.
