Adrian’s top 20 posts and controversy in the church

2312105_1d033e6a

I thought I would share with you this summer my top twenty posts of all time (judged by traffic received since I moved to Patheos).  What is striking is that six out of the top ten are all about controversies in the church. I suppose it is inevitable that such things will draw the traffic. But, isn't it also a bit sad?I don't regret anything I said in these posts. And I am sure there will always be debate and controversies within the church. Isn't it just a little sad, however, that we all s … [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...]
