It’s been a great year on the UC blog. I took over the helm of this little corner of the Internet in May and since then have worked hard to try and maintain the high standard that John Shore set when he originally founded this group. (By the way, you have gotten in on John’s Kickstarter campaign, right? Trust me, you don’t want to let it slip by!)
Below are our most popular post from this past year, and while I’m proud to have published each and every one of them, I’m also equally proud to have published posts that didn’t necessarily generate thousands of pageviews. Such posts are often part of our Christian Spirituality category — if you’re looking for something a little more contemplative I encourage you to check them out as well.
Finally, if you have some writing you’d like to share, I’m always looking for contributors. Or, if you’d just like to ask a question or make a suggestion about UC, this blog, or life in general, please drop me a line via our contact form.
