Below I have put the church leadership blogs that I currently "subscribe to." I check my NewsGator Online (Free version) website each day and it gives me the headlines of all the new posts.
If you are new to reading blogs, I will tell you more about why you might want to use a RSS_aggregator like NewsGator in the next post.
I have not put many blogs on my permanent blogroll on the side of this page (only the firmly established Andrew Jones, Scot McKnight, and Out of Ur) because the blogs vary so much in quality and frequency but I thought I would share all of them here. Some of the people I know personally, some I don't. I have put a few quick notes below.
