King for a Week – Coffeeswirls

Articles Collection cover image

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 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 honoree is Coffeeswirls, the online home of Doug McHone. Doug was one of the first bloggers with whom I made a genuine personal connection. He has become a good friend, first via email and then in “real life.” We spent a weekend together at last year’s Desiring God Conference and will be spending the week together this coming week at The Shepherd’s Conference. As I am liveblogging the event, Doug will also be posting reflections on the week in L.A. So be sure to stop by his site this week for further information about what is happening at the conference.

For the next few days you will be able to see the most recent headlines from Coffeeswirls in the sidebar of my site. I hope you will make your way over to 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 by clicking on the “suggest” button below the King of the Week box. Thanks to those of you who nominated this week’s honoree.

    Like an iPhone, Only Much More So

    Can I confess something to you? There’s one thing Aileen does that really bugs me. We will be talking together and enjoying one another’s company. But then, as we chat, I’ll hear the telltale buzz of her phone. And I can tell that I’ve lost her. I can see it in the look on her…
