Yesterday’s piece on the new Faith in the Community report by Christians in Parliament and the Evangelical Alliance took the number of posts on this blog to 300. I’m giving myself a moment to pause and celebrate having got this far. It’s been a hard old slog working at producing about 200 posts per year, but I’m very pleased with what’s been achieved. God and Politics in the UK is becoming increasingly well known in political and Christian spheres and continues to grow its readership through Twitter, Facebook and email and WordPress subscriptions. I’m continuing to make plenty of new friends and receive valuable support from various organisations and people. Every positive comment I get still means a great deal and when people thank me for what I’m doing it makes the hours of hard work a lot easier to bear. I still don’t believe I could keep going if it wasn’t for the support of my family and also God’s blessing and the motivation He gives me. So, for all of this I am very thankful.
Looking back, here’s the rundown of the ten most read posts since God and Politics in the UK started back in November 2011:
- A tale of two bomb attacks
- David Cameron’s Easter message
- Being gay, Steve Chalke and where the church has got it wrong
- How much aid does the UK government give to countries where Christians are persecuted?
- You’ve read Cameron’s Easter speech, now read President Obama’s
- Giles Fraser’s attack on Evangelical Christians is both ignorant and unnecessary
- Just how offensive was Rowan Atkinson’s Comic Relief Archbishop of Canterbury?
- Unconditional: Rescuing the Gospel from the Gays-vs-Christians Debate by Justin Lee – a review
- Have we shut out the poor from Christian festivals?
- Loaded Magazine’s ex-editor condemn’s lad mag culture in act of repentance
Once again thank you for visiting this blog and taking the time to read my thoughts whether this is your first visit or you are a seasoned regular. An especially big thank you to those who have guest-blogged, left comments or shared links through Twitter and Facebook. I’m hoping and praying I can keep this up for at least another 100 entries.
