Orthodox Christian blogs
Matt Stone in Australia asked about Orthodox Christian blogs, and asked for people to compile a list. Sally Coleman in England took it up (I was going to say “The UK”, but after the Scottish elections I’m not sure how much longer it will last).
Here’s the meme:
Can anyone recommend some good Orthodox Christian blogs? I have been searching around and come up with a couple, but I’m looking for more to broaden my horizons.
What I thought might be a cool idea, in the interests of ecumenism, is to create a meme to help aggregate some of the best Orthodox blogs together.
To participate, simply copy the list you’ll find below into a post on your own blog, add 3-5 blogs to the bottom of the list and note the country of origin. Preference should be given to Orthodox bloggers that demonstrate an ecumenical spirit, that is, who engage with folk beyond their own immediate tradition. Encourage others to do the same. Oh, and the aim is get as a wide cross section as possible, so I am looking for a variety of traditions – Coptic, Greek, Russian – from a variety of countries and not just your own.
The list could get long but that’s basically the point of the exercise. When you’ve done all the above, leave a trackback or comment below, or link to this post, so I can keep track of who ends up being recommended.
Though two of them don’t really seem to be blogs.
I’ll repeat my comment to Matt: My nominations would the the same as 4 out of 5 of my nominations for the “Thinking Blogger Award” at Notes from underground: Thinking blogger award, and I see you already have one of them.
But here they are again:
- The Scrivener –
- Glory to God for all things – Life, journey of faith, Orthodox Christianity and religion in culture.
- Notes from a commonplace book – Common-place Book: n. a book in which common-places, or notable or striking passages are noted; a book in which things especially to be remembered or referred to are recorded.
- +Seraphim’s Journal – an amazing collections of thoughts and jottings inspired by literature, art, places and friends, by an Orthodox bishop
Anyway, if you know of any good Orthodox Christian blogs not listed above, please let Matt know.
