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 (in theory) 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 recipient of the award is Expository Thoughts, a blog the features the writing of five men, all of whom are pastors (though it seems that one of these, Paul Lamey, does the vast majority of the writing). The authors say, “There’s no greater task under the Sun than to proclaim the Word of God. However, preaching has become an endangered species whereby anything and everything is called ‘preaching’. It was P. T. Forsyth who reminded us of preaching’s crucial nature when he said, ‘It is, perhaps, an overbold beginning, but I will venture to say that with its preaching Christianity stands or falls.’ Expository Thoughts is dedicated to the expository ministry of the Christian Scriptures (it’s recovery, sharpening, and systematic proclamation). It is our aim to provide encouragement, resources, and general discussion related to the preaching ministry.” While the site’s primary audience is pastors and church leaders, there is plenty at the site to benefit any Christian.
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.
