King for a Week – Unashamed Workman

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 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.

This week’s recipient of the award is Unashamed Workman. This is a blog owned by Colin Adams, a pastor who serves at Charlotte Baptist Chapel in Edinburgh, Scotland (a city I lived in for the better part of a year back when I was a teenager). His blog exists primarily to discuss issues relevant to those who preach the Word. He writes, “There are several preaching blogs already which I appreciate. … Nevertheless, there is still fairly little blogging being done relative to such an important task as preaching. I hope this blog will help fill in this gap. From a personal level, its a space for me to think through how I can be a better ‘workman’ who ‘correctly handles the word of truth.’ I speak as a student and learner of preaching, not as a teacher and expert.” Colin’s blog follows a fairly strict format with different emphases from Monday to Saturday (you can read about the format here. While Colin is still quite new to blogging, I can see that his site will fill a niche and become a valuable part of the Christian blogosphere. I admire his passion for preaching and hope that he can maintain his passion for blogging, especially when it follows such a rigorous and demanding format!

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.
