Mathetes Award

I was surprised and honored earlier this week to see that Deb at UKok's Place had nominated me for the mathetes award: excellence in discipleship.

By way of explanation:
A brand new award being is being passed out. It is the Mathetes Award, created by Dan King of Management by God to recognize those who take to heart the Great Commission and further God’s Kingdom by creating more disciples for Him. According to Dan mathetes is the Greek word for disciple.

The rules for the award, as posted by it’s creator are as follows: 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.

I feel singularly unworthy for this award, and therefore double honored. I'd love to think of myself as creating disciples - and can only hope that I have done so.

So - in honoring the rules of this award, I now will nominate five other disciples.

Barb at SFO Mom

Alice at Cottage Blessings

Elena of My Domestic Church

and Karen Edmisten.

These are all ladies whose blogs I enjoy reading, and who often make me think. They are not afraid to showcase their religion; they live by an example that is worth emulating.
