The year my commute almost killed my blog. Review of 2015

As 2015 draws to a close, it is my tradition to review the year that was. I have reviewed my blog previously, looking at posts from 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014.   Each time I do so, I find that it is helpful for me to reflect on what I have written, and behind that what God has done each year.2015 was a year that I had been slightly concerned about for many years. It was the year that my eldest, Tamasin, would take her A Levels, my next, Henry, h … [Read more...]

Top Posts during 2014

In my last post I reviewed this year's blogging.  Now I want to share the articles that have been most popular on my site in the last twelve months.

The best and the worst of 2014

It is hard to believe that 2014 is about to draw to an end. It is good for us to turn to a few days of reflection on what has been, of gratitude to God for his faithfulness, of expressing our regrets, and of giving voice to our hopes for 2015.The year on this blog began with me sharing content from Eddy Leo which included an interview and sessions from our 300 Leaders conference that had occurred in 2013. Eddy's impact on our church was real, and we continue to implement his helpful and … [Read more...]

Five years of Patheos and the best of my blog

Patheos is celebrating its five year anniversary, and as part of that I've been asked to post a video discussing my favourite moment since being on Patheos, and to post some of the highlights of my blog here on Patheos. As I explain in the video, to call it a "favourite" moment is really inaccurate as it was a moment that resulted from a tragic event. But it lead to certainly my most impactful series to date.My most impactful moment of blogging on Patheos: My Top Five … [Read more...]

My review of the year: 2013

What a year this has been.  For me personally there were some quite challenging months while Andrée was working full time. This involved me in needing to do a lot more to help around the house than usual. But it did mean that I learnt to appreciate her even more than I already did.  I am very glad that she has now decided to focus her attention full-time on the family. Five children, a dog, and me is more than enough.  We all missed her way too much! I am thankful for her as she works so hard for … [Read more...]
