Bloggers run hot and cold. Do this long enough and you either sound like a broken record or you start reading like the leaflets handed out from downtown street corners by former mental patients.
So when someone's on, the rest of us need to get the word out.
Mark Lauterbach of GospelDrivenLife is writing the best Godblog right now. No question about it. He's filling his blog with challenging stuff flowing with grace, wisdom, and truth. If you're not reading this blog, you're missing a real jolt to the soul. Anyone who can shake us out of our complacency and yet leave us refreshed is a treasure. That's Mark in a nutshell.
I have pretenses toward writing. Every so often I post about being a Christian who writes. Of all the blogs I've encountered for writers, none matches Terry Whalin's The Writing Life. Every post is loaded with helpful hints, great links, professional connections—I've got more of Terry's posts checked as keepers in Bloglines than any site I read. That Terry's a Christian is icing on the cake. Now that even your Great Aunt Gertrude fancies herself the next Annie Proulx, you might have a need to read Terry. Hey, you've already got a blog, right? Why not go for the next step?
Check out these two blogs and have a great weekend.

Thanks for the links. I will frequent them. Also, thanks for writing. I do usually read, and usually enjoy.
amen and amen! I find myself quoting Mark Lauterbach at least once a week, it seems. LOVE his blog–more people need to be reading it!
