King for a Week – The Rebelution

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 (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 The Rebelution, the blog of Alex and Brett Harris, “homeschooled Christian teenagers from Oregon, have grown up in the stimulating environment of a ministry household.” They are the kid brothers of Josh Harris. Yes, that Josh Harris. Alex and Brett are committed to speaking out for God to their generation. The Rebelution allows them to apply their gifts to the challenge of calling young adults to use their teenage years to prepare themselves for all of life to the glory of God. So what is a Rebelution, you might ask? According to Alex and Brett, it is “a widespread teenage rebellion against the low expectations of an ungodly culture.” Hey, that sounds good to me! I could have used a little bit of that kind of rebellion when I was in my teens.

For the next few days you will be able to see the most recent headlines from The Rebelution 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.

    The Glorious End without the Difficult Means

    Just as Olympic athletes cannot realistically expect to win a gold medal unless they strictly discipline themselves toward victory, Christians cannot hope to prevail in the Christian life unless they take a serious, disciplined approach to it. Yet lurking in the background is always the temptation to hope that we can have the result of…
