Kind thanks to Daniel Nour for awarding me the blogosphere hot potato that is the “Reader Appreciation Award.” Daniel is a fourth year Media student at the University of Sydney and a good friend. His blog (http://danielnour.wordpress.com) features Daniel’s ponderings on various pop culture and spiritual issues, from which he’s usually able to draw some surprising but very piercing truths.
The rules of the award stipulate that I must (on pain of some fate worse than death):
l) Acknowledge the giver of the award and provide a link to his or her blog.
2) Copy and paste the award to my blog.
3) Pass the award on to up to ten bloggers.
4) Notify the selected bloggers that you have nominated them.
I’m going to pass the award on to two blogs.
The first is that of Fr. Antonios Kaldas (to people that know me, this may seem dodgy; but I assure you I have no idea what you’re talking about). His blogs cover a stunning range of topics, which is perhaps one of the greatest draws of his blog. His chief interests are in astronomy and philosophy, but he very frequently digresses into other areas like politics and popular culture, which he’s always able to weave into his primary interest: the Christian faith.
The second is a blog called ‘Winged Keel and Crumpet‘, which I only discovered recently. The blog’s author is Nathan Lyons, a PhD student in Philosophy (metaphysics), whose posts frequently make use of patristic writers, and people who I’m wont to absent-mindedly promote to the rank of patristic writers like CS Lewis and DB Hart.
