A couple of months back, a friend of mine posted on Facebook that he’d been chosen as the Beard of the Month over at The Bearded Idealist. After reading more about my friend’s beard, and poking around the blog, I opted to toss my whiskers in the ring to see what might happen…
To my great surprise, I was award the prestigious recognition of being selected for the April Beard of the Month. Being as how today is my Father’s birthday, I’d like to dedicate this honor to him.
So, without further delay, I am pleased to share with you all, The Bearded Idealist April Beard of the Month.
I just so happened to be poking around Scot McKnight’s blog today; something I don’t do nearly enough. And while there I happened to have my attention caught by this post displaying the various beards found in ministry.
Being a beaded man myself, and in ministry, I decided to check it out further. While there were several styles that came close, none nailed it quite like the Neo-Reformed. See for yourself:
If you look close enough, you’ll even notice I have the beginnings of the white streaks beginning to establish themselves. Referencing the description, and it’s a lock for sure. I suppose it goes without saying that from here on out I’ll be referring to myself in theological circles as a Neo-Reformist; but then again any well trained theologian will already know that just by noting the beard.
