On Friday I reviewed the year from several angles. But there is one left to consider. Since this was a year of weekly series, what were some of the highlights? Which series stirred the most responses? Which series stirred interest with the fewest post, and which went on the longest? Here’s a quick look back:
They got into the final – Four series stirred enough interest (comments and likes, as well as in-person conversations) to warrant a mention here:
Agonizingly close to a podium finish – Just keeping up the Olympic theme since this has been such a great year for British sport! These three almost sneaked into the top three:
Biggest Big Ideas - this was my favourite series of the year to write. The biggest big ideas weaving through the canon. God, Creation, Sin, Grace, Faith, Redemption, Community, Spreading Goodness, Hope, Christ.
The medal places – So here are the top three series of 2012:
Gold – Preaching Story (also the longest, at 18 posts!): Theology, People, Plots, Power, Function, Adults, Reading, Telling, Mistakes, part 2, Thesaurus, Bible, OT, Gospels, Acts, Storying, Super-Genre, Artistry/Accuracy.
It has been a good year to ponder preaching together. Thank you for visiting the site, for commenting and most of all, for faithfully serving a God worth proclaiming!
