The Christian Carnival 100 is up

With yours truly not entered (please do not let that keep you from looking)

The introduction from Nick Queen, the founder, at Nick

I began the Christian Carnival on January 21, 2004 with this prayer:
I thank you for this day, and for this opportunity to spread your word and message in a new way. I thank you for the opportunity that you have given us all, and the freedom and privelage to spread our thoughts and ideas on a tool such as the interent, and I ask you now to bless all of our endeavours, and to help us each to bring others to your precious embrace. I ask now Father that you will open the eyes and hearts of all who come and read these thoughts, and to help them see and understand your love. I ask this all in Jesus's precious name.

About Christian Carnival:
Contributing a Post to the Christian Carnival

The Christian Carnival is open to Christians of Protestant, Orthodox, and Roman Catholic convictions. One of the goals of this Carnival is to offer our readers to a broad range of Christian thought.

Posts need not be of a theological topic. Posts about home life, politics, or current events, for example, written from a Christian worldview are welcome.

Update: As the goal of this Carnival is to highlight Christian thought in the blogosphere, entries will be limited to blogs that share that goal. Blogs with content that is focused on a business, that has potentially offensive material Christians may not want to link to on their sites, or has no reference to distinctively Christian thought may not be included in this Carnival. There are other Carnivals that would be a more appropriate venue for that material. I realize that this will be a judgment call on the part of the Carnival administrator, and being human she may make mistakes. However, as the Christian Carnival is getting quite large, and it is sometimes questionable whether the entrants are seeking to promote Christian thought, I find this necessary.

Update: We also expect a level of discourse that is suitable for a Christian showcase. Thus entries may be refused if they engage in name-calling, ad hominem attacks, offensive language, or for any similar reason as judged by the administrator.

So, if you have a post in this framework - go here to find out more: Christian Carnival info. BTW, if you really want progressive Christian thought to have wider presence . . .
