The 33rd Christian Carnival is up at Trommeter Times. I'm not entirely sure if it's done yet, since it consists of multiple pages and was advertized not too long ago as still in process. My Reverend is part of it this week. I've got more to say about some of the posts in this Carnival than I sometimes do, so gird up your loins and prepare to wade in.
I'm very glad to see Mark Roberts taking part in the Christian Carnival again. This week's is a reflection on the gay ordination issue in mainline denominations, complete with a history lesson on how originally the arguments were focusing on whether scripture allows homosexual behavior but has veered into different directions as those lines of thought have become increasingly hard to maintain.
The link in the Carnival for Behind the Rim...'s post doesn't work, so here's the real one. I was also surprised by the Ben Stein quote: We are puny, insignificant creatures. We are not responsible for the operation of the universe, and what happens to us is not terribly important. God is real, not a fiction, and when we turn our lives over to Him, he takes far better care of us than we could ever do for ourselves. In a word, we make ourselves sane when we fire ourselves as the directors of the movie of our lives and turn the power over to Him. Amen. The rest is nice, too.
Amidst the rapid succession of posts on Christian counseling stuff by Adrian Warnock and Jollyblogger, Proverbial Wife chimes in with why Christian counseling (and not just the Jay Adams variety, though it includes that) can be very good (though some of the dangers pointed out by the Jay Adams crowd about the other varieties are real).
Rebecca Writes continues her series on the attributes of God with God's holiness. As she says, this is probably the hardes one to get a handle on, but I think this is a good explanation of some of the most important things.
Jollyblogger has a lot of worthwhile thoughts that I just can't hope to summarize well in "-isms" and "izations".
