The Wade...............

In honor of the The Academy Awards or Oscars, I have now started the 1st Annual Academy of Southern Baptist Blog Awards or the The WADE! This is in honor of Wade Burleson, Pastor of Emmanuel Baptist Church in Enid, OK who has displayed courage, vision and integrity in regards to the controversy regarding private prayer language and baptism polices for the SBC International Mission Board. So lets have some fun! 1. Best design in a blog- Joe Kennedy- He has designed half of our blogs! 2. Best Writing- Tim Sweatman - He has a great way with words that is short, to the point and very insightful! There were many other excellent candidates and the committee had a difficult time deciding. 3. Best Visual Effects - Howie Luvzus- he always has great photos that make us laugh 4. Best Drama- Tom Ascol- Wow! His post on Johnny Hunt for SBC President brought out Steve Camp, Ergun Caner, and Emir Caner debating Calvanism. The Drama was better than Law and Order! 5. Best Supporting Female Blogger- Dorcas Hawker- she is an attorney who makes insightful comments on various blogs. 6. Best Female Blogger in a Lead Role- Kiki Cherry- She always has wise words that we bonehead men need to hear. 7. Best Supporting Male Blogger- Art Rogers- Art is reletively new to the blogsphere but he is one that I would want protecting my back! His tenacity is contagious! 8. Best Male Blogger in a Lead Role- Marty Duren- Who else? His insight and perspective have led this Young Leader Revolution. 9. Best Blog- Marty Duren- the 1st repeat winner. Who else could win. His is the most read blog in SBC life! 10. Life Time Achievement Award- Our Missionaries- You are the real hero's and we appreciate what you do!

Does this mean I have to rent a tux?

Thanks dude, I'd like to thank *God*, my parents, my wife and kids, my church, Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye, Kid Rock, Jerry Orbach (did you know he did the voice of Lumierre in Beauty and the Beast), my producers and directors, Coldplay, Collective Soul, Kansas, Chris Tomlin, David Crowder, iTunes, and the makers of No-Doz.

Don't have a long acceptance speech or we might have to turn off the microphone! Or you could be like Sally Fields and say "you love me, you really love me!"

Well shoot Kdawg,

Had I been given any early warning of this annual event I would have lent you a better picture than the one you pasted on the body of Oscar.

By the way, that cartoonish sketch (which I happen to think is pretty good) was done by the artist for the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship in Oklahoma as he lampooned me for being a Fundamentalist? Go figure.

The Liberals are calling me a Fundamentalist and the Fundamentalists are calling me a Liberal. I like them all, but I can't get em to like me --- yet.

Sorry, I digress.

Thanks Kdawg! Please let Marty "Bull" Duren know I expect both his Wades to be on his firelace mantle when I visit him someday.

Wow! I don't know what to say. I didn't even prepare a speech. I would like to thank my blog mentor who introduced me to blogging and to SBC Outpost. I would like to thank Wade Burleson, this award's namesake, for establishing my credibility through the Solomon Award, I would like to thank ... {ten minutes later} ... I would like to thank my internet service provider, the electric company, Thomas Edison ...

To all my fans:

I'll be signing autographs at Greensboro for 50c/word. If you want me to write some sappy comment about you being my best friend forever, it'll cost you.

Hey--we MSC people have got to make a living somehow!!!!! : )

Blogger art rogers said...

Thank you. Wow. You think you know what you're going to say, but then the sweat hits and you're just looking at all these people.

Would you believe me if I told you I was at a loss for words?

Me either.

Hillarious, Kev.

I'll sign your Bible as if I wrote it. Only $3.25. I'm just a poor seminary student.

I can relate to the name calling.


if your speech went more than 10 min. the mic. would have been cut off.


If this helps you make $ go for it!


No, I don't believe you are at a loss for words.


That's funny!

I want an award

Award, you don't need no stinkin award :)

neil, i give you the best "completely uninvolved in the IMB affirs" award.

how are things going?

3/02/2006 11:51:00 PM  
Blogger Dorcas said...

Let's see, Kiki is charging 50 cents a word, Joe is charging $3.25 for a signed Bible. I had my autograph book all ready to go for the convention ... I better save up my nickles and dimes now. Assuming it takes about five minutes a person to sign autographs and have a proper chat with adoring fans, and factoring in my hourly rate, I guess I'll be charging $12.00 each. Got to make up that billable time lost for the trip to Greensboro after all.

Oh, and Kdawg, you can turn off the microphone, you can go to commercial, you can cut the lights, but I shall finish my speech. :)

well everything goes good on my side of the flattened axis sphere (thats the earth) not enough sleep as you can tll by that comment.

I appreciativly accept my award for not being invloved in any IMB affairs . . . (international Men In Black????) thats just wierd

Blogger Tim Sweatman said...

I am truly honored. Unlike some of you money-grubbers, I'm not going to charge for autographs or words of wisdom. Not because I'm not greedy, but because it would be a waste of time. Since my writing is so "short" and "to the point" I wouldn't make any money if I charged by the word!

You guys & gals crack me up! I have enjoyed reading your comments these past several weeks ...

I luv it... is this a new category for the Oscars this year?

Wow! Thanks so much! I'll make sure to post this. My parents will be so proud!
