The introduction from Carl at Thoughts of a Gyrovague:
This weeks posts are not in any particular order. I am not as creative as some of you with determining themes, but here they are.

The introduction from Leslie at Lux Venit:
Welcome to Christian Carnival CXL! As your hostess/trainer, I hope to guide you on an uplifting tour and work-out.

The Apostle Paul likened the Christian life to that of a runner who runs in a race to win. The runner rigorously trains. Paul also used the metaphor of a soldier. Both the runner and the soldier must train and learn discipline. This week's carnival offers all that and a PowerBar! Let's get started!

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.
