Top posts in 2013

Was it only in July that I hit "publish" and the blog was born?  I was a bit uncertain about raising my voice, and I'm still working on it. But I must say—this blog is teaching me more than I ever dreamed. And I find myself enjoying crafting posts and inviting other voices to participate, to expand our horizons and challenge us to a greater faithfulness to the inbreaking kingdom of God. Most unexpected: the many google searches for "only barren woman in the Bible" that brought visitors, and the pure joy of hearing the stories of others and wrestling through the issues of theology and "what in the world does it mean to follow Jesus?" together.
