I'm a Mathetes!

Joey at Catholic Homeschooled Teens has nominated me for the Mathetes award. Now I had to read his blog over a few times to get the idea through my thick head that it really DOESN'T have anything to do with math. I just just stuck on that word and thinking it was math related and all I could think was boy his trust is really misplaced! - I'm terrible at math. But when I actually read it mathetes means disciple.

Of course when I realized that I was now being given the award for being a good disciple I got worried that his trust might be misplaced again. But I'm really honored that he would mention me as a one of the 5 that he is tagging with this.

As per the rules I'm including the original post, and 5 (6) blogs I would like to honor.

"Mathetes is the Greek word for disciple, and the role of the disciple (per the Great Commission) is to make more disciples. I'd like to take the opportunity to award five other bloggers with this award and badge for acting in the role of a disciple of Christ. These five all share the message in their own creative ways, and I admire them all for what they do.

In the spirit of this award, the rules are simple. Winners of this award must pick five other "disciples" to pass it on to. As you pass it on, I just ask that you mention and provide links for (1)this post as the originator of the award (Dan King of management by God), (2) the person that awarded it to you, and then (3) name and sites of the five that you believe are fulfilling the role of a disciple of Christ. If you know of other deserving recipients of this award, and would like to start a new string, then please post a link to where you've started in in the comments to this post. I would love for many deserving bloggers to be blessed with this recognition."

I'd also like to add Ruminations of a Christian Conservative Geek and Friends to my list (yeah I know it says 5, but we all know how I have a hard time doing that). They don't blog on religion very often, but I know they're good Christian men, and I want to include them too.

Don't feel badly, I was doing the same thing. . . I remember mathletes club from high school, and I was definitely NOT a member!
Thank you for the honor; you deserve it as well, God has given you many gifts: you're a young conservative,a devout Catholic,and you can write!

About Me

My photo
Catholic and politically conservative, I graduated with a BA in History (concentration in American) and Political Science. I'm between two parishes; one in Wisconsin that is fairly traditional, and one in Illinois that is fairly liberal. I teach CCD. I work in the food service industry, which basically means I'm working in fast food until I find a better job. I'd like to work for the church somehow. Right now I'm working on getting my teaching certification, although I'm unsure thats the correct path for me. This blog is as random as I am. I hope you enjoy.
