King For A Week - Pure Church

King for a Week is an honor I bestow on blogs that I feel are making a valuable contribution to my faith and the faith of other believers. Every week (or so) I select a blog, link to it from my site, and add that site’s most recent headlines to my left sidebar. While this is really not much, I do feel that it allows me to encourage and support other bloggers while making my readers aware of other good sites.

This week’s King For A Week is Pure Church, the blog of Thabiti Anyabwile. Until recently Thabiti served as an elder with Capitol Hill Baptist Church, but he has just been called to pastor a church in Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands. He describes his blog as “A contemplation of all things church… and a desire for an increasingly pure church reformed by the word of God.” Among the excellent articles Thabiti has written is a series on “Things I Learned While at Capitol Hill Baptist Church.” An ex-Muslim himself, he is currently in the midst of writing a series dealing with how to witness to Muslims.

In the coming days you will be able to see the most recent headlines from this blog in the sidebar of my site. I hope you will make your way over the site and look around.

I continue to accept nominations for King of the Week. If you have a site you would like to nominate, feel free to do so. Thanks to those of you who nominated this week’s honoree.
