I passed a decade as a blogger this year. My first post was on January 25, 2004. Since then, I have published 2,747 posts and collected nearly 50,000 comments.

I would love to hear from you, readers, about what you’d like. Would you like me to bring back “Questions That Haunt Christianity“? Would you like a lectionary series? Dispatches from the road?
