We recieve two awards
The Big Orange Truck has handed two meme tag awards to us here at Free St. George's. Namely the 'Thinking Blogger' award:
And the 'Oikodomeis Award':
Now, we COULD return the compliment by awarding both to the Big Orange Truck again, but that would be silly, so instead I will suggest two blogs for the Thinking Blogger award (leaving my brother in Cardiff to do the other three) and one for the Oikodomeis Award (leaving Hiraeth to nominate his own candidate).
First up for the 'Thinking Blogger', not a blog, but (as the name suggests), a blogger: Pastor Gary Brady of Child's Hill. The content here is very varied, which is one of its charms. Gary Brady is a pastor in North London. His blogs are Child's Hill Baptist Church history;
Richard Bernard, Puritan; Benjamin Beddome; Thomas Adams, Puritan Shakespeare; Heavenly Worldliness. The last, with a tremendously varied content, is his main blog. The very fact that he has produced these blogs is a reason for giving him this award.
My next candidate for this award is Rhett Kelley of Rhett's Rants. This is a blog that takes a serious (and sometimes not so serious) look at modern evangelicalism and culture from a solid Southern Calvinistic worldview. As a great admirer of the works of such Southern stalwarts as Robert L. Dabney, John L. Girardeau, Thomas E. Peck, James H. Thornwell, James P. Boyce and John A. Broadus (not to mention Professor Tom Nettles,Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Dr. Russell D. Moore and Pastor Dean Olive), I am glad to be able to say that solid Reformed theology is far from dead in the South. On a lighter note, why are Tom Nettles and Dean Olive the only men in that list with no initial in their names?
For the prestigious 'Oikodomeis Award':, I nominate
Depite causing a few problems on this computer last week (making the browser quit), Fide-O uniformly edifies AND is not afraid to take on large and contentious issues (such as the 'Common Grace' controversy. Do they need my recommendation? Probably not, but they're getting it anyhow!
