Welcome to the 411th edition of the Christian Carnival.  Christian blog writers share their best post (one post only) from the previous week.  Topic is not necessarily about Christianity but must reflect a Christian worldview, and the writer must be Christian to qualify.  You can see who’ll be hosting future Carnivals (and/or submit your own post) on the Christian Carnival home page.

I’ve been a bad blogger lately if blogging consistency counts for anything (and it does), so I have no post of my own to add to this carnival.  There have been a few changes to the Carnival in the last few months, including new categories for submissions and a new Facebook page.  Here are this week’s posts, arranged in the order they were received, and within the categories to which they were submitted by the authors.
