Welcome to the 355th edition of christian carnival ii.  I don’t have much time to review this week’s posts, so I’ll present them below exactly as they were submitted, beginning with the post I received first.

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 November 24, 2010 edition of christian carnival ii

Diane R presents How the Church Can Improve Christian Education, Part 3 posted at Cerulean Sanctum, saying, “The age segregation in churches is destroying the faith and our younger members too.”

Weekend Fisher presents Seven Wonders of the Ancient World – and a problem with the modern world posted at Heart, Mind, Soul, and Strength, saying, “What do the seven wonders of the ancient world tell us about what is wrong with the modern world?

Dave Taylor presents Lord, to whom shall we go? at Disciple’s Journal, saying, “This is the third in a series of posts (Past, Post-  or Still a Part) about people disaffected with the church or their particular part of it.

Jeremy Pierce presents Secondary Moral Obligations posted at Parableman, saying, “some comments on the pope’s clarifications on condoms”

My contribution this week is a tribute to my dad:  My father was killed in an auto accident.

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, November 23, 2010 and midnight EST Tuesday night November 30, 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.
