The introduction from Cadmus at Cadmusings:
Hello and welcome to the 117th edition of the Christian Carnival. When I hosted the carnival in December I chose a theme to go along with our son's birthday with the Dog Show Edition Well, oddly enough, this time around, the Christian Carnival falls on our wedding anniversary. Yep, my wife and I are celebrating 9 years of marriage today. My plan was to do the theme this time with a history of the traditional gifts for the first nine anniversaries but I was wasting too much time Googling for it without finding what I wanted. I decided to just present the entries and share with everyone our good news of God's blessings on our marriage, and our family with our 4 year old son and our 19 day old daughter
About Christian Carnival:
So, if you have a post in this framework - go here to find out more: Christian Carnival info.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.
