The second-ever Christian Reconciliation Carnival will be held here at Dr. Platypus on (or shortly after) March 1. If you would like to nominate a blog post (your own or someone else’s) on any aspect of living out the unity for which Jesus prayed, please email your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight, February 28. Please include the following information:
- Your name or pseudonym.
- Link and title of post.
- Category of post, if applicable: general interest, question and answer, reconciliation, topic of the month (see below), or discussions and debates.
- Church affiliation of the person making the post(s) (for any category except general interest).
February’s special topic is the Church and Racial Reconciliation. Bloggers who belong to racial or ethnic minority groups (relative to your locale) are especially encouraged to offer a submission.
If you’re interested, you can read over the complete guidelines for participation. The short version is, we want thoughtful, respectful posts that look for common ground among Christians of various stripes. If you are an orthodox Christian (by the most generous definition of the term) who wishes the body of Christ looked more like a united family and less like a hodgepodge of balkanized factions sniping at each other, let us hear from you!
Also, we are looking for hosts for future Carnivals. If you’d be willing to give it a try, please let us know via the same email address listed above.
