Well, it’s been just about one year of this. My first official familia Dei post was published on January 13, 2011 and had 7 views (thanks Mom).
Since, I’ve written 78 posts and had 3,581 views.
Obviously, traffic isn’t the aim for a blog like this. But I’ve been grateful for a little real estate in the online world to articulate and share the what I think is the best part of being a Christian: being adopted into a huge, perfect, eternal family — the family of God.
Just for kicks, here is a list of the top 11 posts of 2011:
- Church as Household
- A Missional Adoption
- Missional Marriage
- A Brief Taxonomy of Converts
- A Very Trinitarian Gospel Scheme
- Eat | Family Rhythms (pt. 1)
- A Trinitarian Diagram of Adoption
- Expand | Family Rhythms (pt. 6)
- Storying | Family Rhythms (pt. 3)
- Family Rhythms
- Becoming a Missional Family (A new blog series)
I’m learning everyday
It’s been fun to go back and read my first ever post, A New Paradigm. You’ll see that my tone has changed pretty dramatically. I’m still totally preoccupied with the gospel — communicated through familial theater — but I think I’ve taken a few steps down from my ivory tower.
More than anything, I’m learning to stop saying so much and start trying to live this stuff (hence, the recent lack of new posts).
I’ve also got more than a few projects going right now. I’m doing some communications with Challenge (the EFCA’s big youth conference), helping missionaries raise support with ReachGlobal, building my wife a laundry room, and some other super exciting projects to be announced in 2012!
Happy New Year! What reflections on 2011 do you have? Big plans for 2012? Let me know down in the comments.
