2012 in review

WordPress.com stats engine prepared a 2012 annual report for my blog.

Overall it was a much slower year than 2011 with ess than half the number of posts. This was mainly due to a major upset that occurred in January of 2012. I wanted to allow some time to think through the events before writing about them. The problem was that I spent a lot of time thinking about that and little else. After January 16 2013, it will be a year since I received the news and I think that’s enough space to start discussing and processing my observations and learning from. I’ll be writing about ethnic ministry in Australia, church culture (not ethnic, sociological and theological), leadership and polity in independent churches (and how they recruit pastoral staff), and will also look at some things I’ve learned (and trying! to put into practice) about preaching after doing it for more than 20 years.

Here’s an excerpt of the WordPress Report:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 11,000 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 18 years to get that many views.

Yes, if you were looking for “God is My Constant”, you’ve found the right place. It was time for a change, so I have updated with a new WordPress theme, “Digg 3”. All else is as before 🙂
