Subversive Blogger Awards, round two



Its time for round two of the Subversive Blogger Awards.

American author Henry Miller (1891-1980) once said, The new always carries with it the sense of violation, of sacrilege. What is dead is sacred; what is new, that is different, is evil, dangerous, or subversive.

Subversive bloggers are unsatisfied with the status quo, whether in church, politics, economics or any other power-laden institution, and they are searching for (and blogging about) what is new (or a return to) - even though it may be labeled as sacrilege, dangerous, or subversive.

For round two of the Subversive Blogger Awards, I am tagging the following five blogs/bloggers:

1. Sarcastic Lutheran by Nadia Bolz-Weber (e.g., Why she isnt that kind of Christian)
2. The Ongoing Adventures of ASBO Jesus by Jon Birch (e.g., Hamster Wheel Church)
3. Missio Dei by Jonathan Brink (e.g., Top 50 Possible Reasons Why You’re Not Emergent)
4. Nate Ritter (e.g., Ideas that Change the World via Twitter)
5. novus•lumen by Jeremy Bouma (e.g., The Good of Affluence: A Critique and Evaluation of Capitalism)

The rules of participation are pretty straightforward:

1. If you are tagged, write a post with links to five subversive blogs.
2. Link back to this post on JakeBouma.com so people can easily find the origin of the meme.
3. Optional: Proudly display the Subversive Blogger Award somewhere on your blog (images below) with a link to the post that you wrote.

Thats all there is to it. Keep in mind that this award is meant as an encouragement to bloggers to keep doing what theyre already doing - being subversive (however you interpret it). May we never forget that Jesus (and His message) was the original and ultimate subversive.

Here are the images you can use for your blog, courtesy of Josh Brown and Red Cowboy Designs. All I ask is that you download them and upload them to your own server.
