Welcome to the 333rd edition of christian carnival ii.  Hmmmm…. for you biblical numerologists out there, is there any significance to the number 333?  (Oh no, it’s half of 666!  Just kidding.)

One of the goals of this carnival is to offer our readers a broad range of Christian thought.  The carnival is open to Christians of Protestant, Orthodox, and Roman Catholic convictions.  If you’ve never participated before, this is a great way to make your writing more well known and perhaps pick up some regular readers.  If you’d like to submit an entry next week you’ll find detailed submission instructions at the end of this post.

Here is the June 23, 2010 edition of christian carnival ii

“Why don’t churches treat visitors any better than they do?”

Jeremy Pierce presents Gender-Inclusive posted at Parableman, saying,

A devotional meditation on Luke 13:25-27.

Yohan Perera presents How to install ChurchInfo in a Windows based Computer? posted at The Virtual Preacher.

Rodney Olsen presents I Already Know This Stuff posted at The Journey – Life : Faith : Family.

We’re often tempted to skip over certain truths or passages of Scripture we think we already know. Rodney offers us a much needed word of caution in his post.

Phillip Lopez presents Famous Christian College Alumni posted at Christian Colleges and Universities.

This post came in a little late and is undated, but it’s interesting so I included it anyway.

My contribution this week is Why do we pray with our eyes closed?

There’s already been a little discussion on that post; I’d love for you to join in.

That concludes this edition. Thanks for reading and participating.  Submit your blog article to the next edition of christian carnival ii using our carnival submission form.  Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.

Detailed Submission Instructions:

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 either use this Blog Carnival submission form, or send your submission to christiancarnivalsubmissions shift-2 gmail dotte com (convert that to a normal email address).  You can view past carnivals and future hosts using the corresponding tabs on this page.

Please submit only one post (per blog, per author) dated since the last Christian Carnival deadline, i.e. something posted between midnight EST Tuesday night, June 22, 2010 and midnight EST Tuesday night June 29, 2010.

Hosts have the option of limiting the Christian Carnival to the first 40 or 50 acceptable entries.  Most hosts do not do this, and most weeks do not have that many posts, but this is a good reason to enter early just in case.  Hosts that limit the number of entries do not have the option of selecting their favorites, so you can’t rely on your post being good.

You can see even more extended instructions on post submissions here, and you can join the weekly reminder list for the Christian Carnival here.
