This, much to my surprise, is the 2nd nomination I have received in the past few months. The first was on 4th November last year and was for the Versatile Blogger award.
Both of these awards require that the nominee 1st recognises and thanks the nominator and then goes on to recommend his/her own top five favourites.
This I did in November in a post headed Transient Glory, so this time I have to find a different five (not easy, since there are so many really good blogs to choose from) and my list is as follows:
"Perpetually in Transit" http://perpetually-in-transit.blogspot.com/ A fascinating glimpse into the life of a much-travelled and lively retired minister.
Tregear Vean @ revjean-tregearvean.blogspot.com/ The daily events, some sad, some curious, some happy in the whirlwind world of a priest in Cornwall.
The Ugley Vicar - John Richardson @ ugleyvicar.blogspot.com/ The very erudite and informative writing of a very experienced priest of the evangelican persuasion. I often do not agree with his views, but could never argue with his logic.
"www.apocalypseicons.com" The very different and totally fascinating blog of a well-established icon artist, Constantina Wood. Apart from her wonderfully spiritual writing, her illustrations are quite stunning.
"Tootallburd" Jenni @ Tootallburd.blogspot.com/ is my last nomination. She is the wife of a minister in Scotland, has had a very busy life, as a nurse and a mother of a large family, and is wise, witty and always worth a read.
These five and my original five are but the tip of an iceberg well worth investigating, and I commend them all to you.
