The introduction from admin at The Evangelical Ecologist:
Happy All Saints Day to you all!
With the obvious connection between All Saints Day and the beginning of the Reformation in Wittenberg, it seems appropriate to recognize our own Wittenberg Dory, the Carnival's patron saint. (No offense meant to our Catholic mates. ed) We appreciate all you do to keep the Carnival rolling along, Dory
The introduction from Rev. Ed at Attention Span:
This edition of the Christian Carnival is being published right after Election Day here in the United States. For many of you, that wouldn't make a whole lot of difference, but for your humble host it means that I'm mighty tired. I was at the local Board of Elections last night and was doing all manner of other things political all day long. That is part of the reason this post is going up a bit late.
But that's also the reason why this Christian Carnival has been dubbed "The Election Hangover Edition." So don't go looking for snappy banter or wise observations in this post -- go visit the contributor's blogs, as most of them got more sleep than I did last night!
The introduction from Diane at Crossroads: Where Faith and Inquiry Meet:
Welcome to this week's Christian Carnival. And now....here it is.......
About Christian Carnival:
So, if you have a post in this framework - go here to find out more: Christian Carnival Participation Instructions. BTW, if you really want progressive Christian thought to have wider presence . . .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.
Deadline for next Carnival: 11/21 at 11:59pm EST.
