Popular posts of 2016

I have not written as much this year as I did in 2015, but I thought I’d end the year by revisiting the most popular posts of 2016. Enjoy!

  • I belong here. This was written after a visit to the hospital where someone made a well-intended but ill-timed remark about speaking the local language.
  • The most important day. The election, understandably, got everyone talking about politics. For Christians, the current situation, while important, is not ultimate. There is something far, far more important.
  • Jesus was poor. Jesus said clearly that he had come to declare justice for the poor, the oppressed, and the captive. If we hope to carry out his commands, we must be concerned for the welfare of the less fortunate.
  • God makes no mistakes. This was perhaps one of the best stories I read in the past year, and an acknowledgement that God is intimately involved in our lives. He makes no mistakes.
  • Life in a small town. The fifth most popular post was about life in a small town, and learning to value new things in a new location.
