Once again, as the old year passes and the new year beckons, it has been my custom to look back at my most popular posts of the year.
As in 2020 (or Plague Year 1, as I’m starting to think of it) we were home and refuge for some of our children and grandchildren, which was a great blessing.
I filled in remotely to lead worship for my pastor daughter while she was on sabbatical, and several of my sermons are on the list. I also joke that my theoblog is gradually morphing into a cooking blog, so several of my recipes made the list.
Like many of us COVID has forced me to recalibrate my focus and energies. I broke my wrist quite badly in July, had a couple of surgeries, and couldn’t type for several months, which is why this years offerings are thinner than usual. Falling seems to be my superpower.
I am preaching and teaching less and doing more of what retired people do, enjoying the rich bird habitat behind my house, hiking, cooking and reading fiction rather than theology (although I am making my way through Katherine Sonderegger’s magnificent opus.)
We lost some family members and others we loved in 2021. “The generations rise and fall.” We haven’t lost hope.
I appreciate all my readers and followers. May the Lord bless you and keep you in 2022.
