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 two weeks (or so) I select a blog, link to it from my site, and add that site’s most recent headlines to my right 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.
I do not read a lot of blogs that focus primarily on politics. The difficulty with being Canadian is that most of the political blogs focus on American politics, and as much as Canada is close to the U.S., both geographically and strategically, it is still only so interesting reading about the politics of another nation. There are some of these blogs, though, that look beyond politics to issues and even just plain fun. The Evangelical Outpost is one of these. The site’s owner, Joe Carter, is one of those intellectual types who can, when he wants to, talk local and philosophical circles around the likes of me. Joe looks at news and issues through the lens of a conservative Christian and more often than not has great things to say. I enjoy his blog, one of the first blogs I began reading, and have benefited from it.
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 all who nominated this week’s honoree.
