Top Posts of 2016, No. 1: Remembering Charles Smith


 


Death. Politics. Relational strife. 2016 was a wild and difficult year. You might think we’re gluttons for punishment to rehash the major storylines from the past 12 months, but sometimes by looking back we can more clearly see the way forward. As preparation for 2017, we’ll be reposting the five most-popular posts of 2016 from All Things New. God is the author of history, and because of that, our reflection can be an opportunity for gratitude and hope.

The countdown concludes at No. 1 with Mitch Majeski’s tribute to the late Charles Smith, a long-time member of the Summitview family. Charles was a dear friend to many in our fellowship, and his capacity for joy and laughter in the middle of suffering is a timeless and beautiful example for us. The New Year can remind us of Jesus’ promise to make all things new, and this promise is certain because of the resurrection. One day, we will again see the twinkle in Charles Smith’s eyes and hear his laugh.

Top Posts of 2016, No. 2: Alan Rickman Will Always Be in Our Hearts


 


Death. Politics. Relational strife. 2016 was a wild and difficult year. You might think we’re gluttons for punishment to rehash the major storylines from the past 12 months, but sometimes by looking back we can more clearly see the way forward. As preparation for 2017, we’ll be reposting the five most-popular posts of 2016 from All Things New. God is the author of history, and because of that, our reflection can be an opportunity for gratitude and hope.

The countdown continues at No. 2 with Ryene Majeski’s tribute to the late Alan Rickman. The deaths of David Bowie, Rickman, Harper Lee and Prince began 2016 with a mood that we couldn’t escape the rest of the year. The loss of prominent culture makers is always a sobering blow, but exits like Rickman’s early in 2016 proved to be all the more heart-wrenching because of the constant discord and disruption that followed.
