Doubly Awarded (or, How to Start a Truly Auspicious New Year)

Yesterday the Church celebrated with great joy the radiant feast of the Theophany, which brings to a close the festal season of the Nativity and Manifestation of Christ our God. Of course, I never mean to go on a blogging hiatus during the festivities, but it invariably happens that the frequent services of the season and its many scheduled merrymaking obligations manage to consume all of my writing time, which inevitably results in what we might call the “January slump.” Perhaps next year it will actually occur to me to announce a break for the festal season, say, during the first two weeks of January!

Yet in spite of the holiday inactivity at The Voice of Stefan, two gentlemen of undoubtedly exquisite taste in blogs have independently seen fit to bestow upon Yours Truly the Superior Scribbler Meme Award!

I thank Messrs Aaron Taylor and Tony Allen, whose blogs I always read with great delight, for their kind mention. (Also, I wish to thank Mr Christopher Orr for mentioning this blog in connection with the award.) Of course, all memes awards come with rules that must be posted and followed lest great cosmic evils befall the transgressor, so here they are:

  • Each Superior Scribbler must in turn pass The Award on to 5 of their most-deserving Bloggy Friends.
  • Each Superior Scribbler must name and link to the blog from whose author he or she has received The Award.
  • Each Superior Scribbler must display The Award on his or her blog, and link to this post, which explains The Award.
  • Each Blogger who wins The Superior Scribbler Award must visit the above post and add his or her name to the “Mr. Linky List.” That way, we’ll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who receives this Prestigious Honor!
  • Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules on his or her blog.

Since it is now my solemn duty to spread the Super-Scribbling love, without further ado, here are my picks:

  • Voices from Russia, by Vara Drezhlo, who alone among the throngs of the unenlightened has her head screwed on straight;
  • Roger Pearse, who unfailingly posts exceedingly helpful materials and information on ancient Christian sources;
  • Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth, by Nick Norelli, the master of book reviews and quintessential biblioblogger;
  • The Guild of Biblical Minimalists, in which learned society I am honored to serve as Michiganian Liaison; and
  • ἐν Ἐφέσῳ, by Mike Aubrey, a kindred spirit who might just geek out over Biblical Greek too much for his own good!

Do visit them all! Of course, I intend to live upto my newly-acquired reputation as a “Super Scribbler,” and will start to post in short order several pieces (including book reviews) on which I’ve been working at odd times over the past weeks of festal feverishness. Stay tuned!
