The 209th Christian Carnival is now up at Everyday Liturgy.
 
The 209th Christian Carnival will be taking place this coming Wednesday at Everyday Liturgy. The Christian Carnival is a weekly collection of some of the best posts of the Christian blogosphere. It's 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. This is a great way to make your writing more well known and perhaps pick up some regular readers. For examples of past carnivals, see the not-recently-updated Matt Jones's list of previous Christian Carnivals or the up-to-date but less-informative christiancarnival.com list.
 
To enter is simple. First, your post should be of a Christian nature, but this does not exclude posts that are about home life, politics, or current events from a Christian point of view. Select only one post dated since the last Christian Carnival (i.e. from the last Wednesday through the coming Tuesday). Then do the following:

It's getting time to fill out the Christian Carnival hosting list once more. If you're interested in hosting the Christian Carnival for any date not covered on the list, please send me an email at the link at the top of the page. For more information about the Christian Carnival, you can see this post and the links therein. I will be updating the list below as I schedule people, but I'll be trying to give new hosts and hosts who haven't done it in awhile some priority over those who have done it more recently. Otherwise it's nearly first-come first-serve.

I'd also like to schedule earlier weeks first, so if you've hosted before (especially if it was recent) or request a week later on don't be surprised if I get to other people first. But anyone not on the list below is welcome to volunteer, even if you hosted as recently as sometime in 2008. I'm hoping to fill out the rest of February and March, and it would be nice to complete April too.

Welcome to the 206th Christian Carnival. In case you're not familiar with the Christian Carnival, it's a weekly collection of blog posts written by Christians from a Christian perspective (including Orthodox, Roman Catholic, and Protestant Christianity). For more information, you can look at the instructions for participation in the Christian Carnival, the list of previous Christian Carnivals (although it hasn't been update in a while), and the most recent list of scheduled hosts for future weeks.

For this week's carnival, I've done the simple thing: no theme, posts displayed in the order I received them, and a special description only if the submitter included one, if it was easy to come up with a quick one myself, or if I had special interest in it. Otherwise I've just used the BlogCarnival default or coded it for HTML quickly on my own if it wasn't a BlogCarnival submission. On to the carnival...

The 105th Christian Carnival is up at Ancient Hebrew Poetry.

When he gets to my post, John offers the following observation:

Jeremy, that was too easy. Why not pick more challenging topics? The quality of public debate on issues like legal and illegal immigration is abysmal: why not raise the bar? Is it possible to be a Christian environmentalist? Why not take on the huge amount of nonsense associated with environmentalism – and anti-environmentalism?

I wasn't sure what to make of this. I could see someone saying something like that and intending it seriously. It may be that he thinks those topics are more challenging, and he thinks there's a great need for clarity on them, while any thinking Christian should see the things I pointed out. I actually agree, to an extent. The reason I wrote on this topic was because I could do it quickly after a long day of trying to recover from basically four days of driving and two days of interviewing while taking care of the kids mostly by myself since we've been back because Sam hasn't been feeling too great. So I needed something I could whip up quickly.

On the other hand, John may be joking. Bioethics issues can be hard, and thoughtful Christians can disagree on them. This particular issue does have good points on both sides. The awful rhetoric on both sides of the immigration and environmental debates is extremely easy to poke holes in, so I can see how someone might think those debates would be easier to say something intelligent about.
