I just figured out how to measure which websites have been referring hits to our blog in months, quarters, years, and all time. Until this discovery I could only see the referrers from the last few days. We here at The Littlefields blog would like to publically honor the blog that sends the most hits our direction. This award will be called the Heavy Hitter All-Time Award 2009. But first we would like to see if you can guess who that lucky person is. Here are the top 5 for you to vote on. And don’t try to pad your stats I’ve already written down who had the most hits as of 7:20 pm 2/27/09.–Dirk
I have a few new items to be placed on the online learning page listed at the top of the blog. I’ll be adding to it as I get done looking through the new sites I found. The first new one is long over due. I have reserved a spot for it, but haven’t ever taken the time to link to it; I regret that. My friends down at Baptist Church of the Redeemer in Missouri City have their sermons online. I suggest you check them out. They are also hosting some more Redeemer Institute seminars this spring. I hope to attend some of them as in the past they have been very good. If you can make it you will not be sorry you went. –Dirk
On the last post like this no one commented. I’ll take that as it just being too difficult to find any connection to theology. Here is another difficult one although I won’t say I haven’t thought it was true at some points. I still don’t know why this church puts these up.–Dirk

After posting about the first article by Steven A. McKinion I found the second article. I commend it to you as it provides some interesting observations about the three generations of the Conservative movement in the SBC. I don’t know if I agree with all of his observations of the first two generations because of my experiences with them; maybe I need to study the history more before I offer too much commentary. However his assessment of the third generation’s two camps of thought (and I would say there are some from all generations in these two) is pretty good:
“Some may see Baptist identity as the means to faithful biblical faith and practice, while others may see faithful Christian life and practice resulting in a Baptist identity“
In light of our study at GRBC about Baptist heritage I think these posts are timely as we get closer to talking about the SBC. And it helps explain some of the conflict in the SBC right now.
I saw this article today written by Steven A. McKinion who is a professor of theology and Patristic studies at SEBTS. He has done a good job of explaining the younger generation of SBC leaders and members while contrasting them to the generations that have preceded us in the conservative movements. What sticks out to me the most is that he does so without being mean or harsh toward either side while painting an accurate picture. If you have some time please read this article (part 1 of a series).
Here are some fun pictures of the past couple weeks. They consist of photos of Dirk and my sister’s entourage at the Houston marathon a couple weeks ago. Beth ran the full marathon and Dirk ran the half. We are all so proud of them. 🙂 Also, there are few of Josiah around being himself. I hope you enjoy!
