And Another Thing…



There are way too many good blogs and other types of pages that I want to share, so from now on here is where to find the good stuff.



Note: I do not necessarily agree with or approve of everything posted on any of these blogs; I list them either because the authors are friends and/or I think that they are interesting to read.  Also, blogs are categorized according to what they write about the most. If you are a church of Christ member or a Christian of another tradition and your blog is listed under a different heading, it is because the majority of your content is not necessarily about issues of faith, religion, or church. Please don’t take offense.
