Once a quarter, or so, I post on the UCC blog Vital Signs and Statistics, with the hope being to combine some church thinking with some new data or material.
This past year, 2018, I had the best read story of the year.
Also, check out other these entries from the past year..

This about dealing with Fake News, especially when considering how to write sermons.

And, the most read story of the year:

Thanks for reading!
Any topics you’d like me to write about in the coming year?
