o we even really do BlogSpotting anymore? It seems like we haven't done this in ages -- and it shows. The pickin's in the blogosphere for links back to this blog are so slim that I have had to go back weeks in some cases to find anyone posting anything about us. Maybe this will spur on a flurry of activity for something other than a post from Dan because somebody learned something from it:
- The Search for Purpose liked the dose of Spurgeon this week. Didn't say much about it, though ...
- London Blogger Doug McMasters liked what I said about church membership so much, he supplemented it with some Calvin
- "Coop" at While Rome Burns says some, um, he says something about my "Why Join a Church?" post. At least he tried to comment.
- I'm hoping this link will put Fred's nose back into joint.
- Not everyone was happy with Dan calling Francis Beckwith's spade a spade, but Pastor's Perspective was.
- EveryDay Mommy manages to link to both VeryMom and teamPyro in the same post -- and it's not to point out that VeryMom's theological short-comings as a Mormon! FOR SHAME!
- Obligatory link to British Link Troll. And I only call him that becuase I know he hates it. But he mentions Phil's upgrade to the world of Mac, so good on him.
- Rondom Thoughts from a Cluttered Mind linked to a spurgeon.org page about Phil eating a candy-coated scorpion. But I can't get the guy to eat a burger at lunch. Go figure.
- Jason Reed liked what Dan had to say about modest dress.
- Bob Hyatt Calls Phil/TeamPyro "the smartest, most eloquent" ... but the smartest, most eloquent source of "waay off base slams" against the Emergent church. Open challenge to Bob: At TeamPyro, we offer critiques to everyone -- evangelical, emergent, reformed, arminian, smart, stupid ... we give everyone something to chew on. Can you personally name anything wrong with the Emergent church which anyone ought to be concerned about, or is Emergent free of any riff-raff? Think about that, bub, before you start with the "way off base" smears.
- On the other hand, M-in-the-Gap gave us a "Thinking Blogger" award, and we never succumbed to that meme. Maybe when we're in Tulsa we can cull the blogopshere and provide our opinion about who makes us think among our blogging neighbors.
Was that enough? That's going almost 4 weeks back. I hope that is enough. And sorry to Challies for correcting this post like 7 times after it was posted ...
