Yee-hah! It's time for the Wednesday Round-up: the Latter Blogs! There seems to be four major themes today:
Sabbath Musings: Several folks are contemplating Quotidian Grace's question about a summer hiatus from Sunday School, which leads to some interesting corollaries on the theme - Susie at Nueva Cantora is one. Stacey at The Almond Branch is another.
Thomas Merton: Joel, the Tent Maker is still working through his rereading of "Seven Storey Mountain" and Mike over at The Mercy Blog ruminates about him too. You know, I ALMOST went to St. Bonnie's for my MSW. Factoid: I worked for a social service agency closely allied with St. Bonaventure. Hmmm, six degrees of separation.
A-Z Meme: Lots of folks are jumping on this like a "duck on a june bug" (Sorry, that was a meme from a couple weeks ago). Get to know your fellow bloggers better! Folks like,
Being Shielded and mibi, Reverend Mother , ppb and Beth. Does it seem to you that there are a lot of Sagittari? Is that even a word?
And our last category, Miscellaneous:
Speaking of words, if you want to make friends and influence people, try out some of
the words found at Twerpette's blog. There is also an array of interesting trivia that will make you go hmmm, hmmm, hmmm.

That about wraps up our late blog Wednesday roundup. As always, if'n I missed you - my apologies and you can always leave a note in the comments!
Get along little doggies and kitties! Be blessed!
