Working the Blogrolls
So yesterday's post, which featured Panda's Ponderings, drew a response from Julianne, who blogs at Semper Reformanda, and who found me through Aron's Some Thoughts. She's got a good thing going over there at "Semper Ref". She says of herself:
"My mission statement would follow that of John Piper's (well, really Paul's): I exist to spread a passion for the supremacy of God, in all things, for the joy of all peoples, through Christ Jesus."At Julianne's blog I discovered Micah's, called Resolution 57. Why does he call it that? Well, because Jonathan Edwards' 57th resolution was:
"Resolved, when I fear misfortunes and adversities, to examine whether I have done my duty, and resolve to do it; and let it be just as Providence orders it. I will, as far as I can, be concerned about nothing but my duty and my sin."Ah, two clicks, and two mission statements. From "Res' 57" I clicked to Abundant Life, where Jessica holds forth:
"a girl on a quest to draw nearer to the heart of God, and in the process people as well!"and then to Journey of the Heart. That's the blog-home of Gayla, who says of herself:
"Daughter of One King; wife to one man; mother to one son; owner of one dog. On the journey to find my way, follow Christ, and finish well."Voices of clarity, of purpose, of hope. Jesus followers. Darn cool stuff.
