Top Posts of 2012 – #1: Questions on Life, Abortion and What It Means to Be Human

 

This week, we will repost the five most-viewed blogs of the year. And, yes, we’re aware that this blog only began in August, but bear with us here. We hope that these re-posts encourage some reflection on the year that was. Many of our posts alluded to or directly commented on some of the major stories of 2012, and by remembering where we’re come, we can, with healthy amounts of prayer, approach the future with more wisdom and understanding.

The top-five countdown comes to a stirring finale as Travis Swan makes his second appearance in our top-5 most-read posts of the year. His intensely inquisitive entry on abortion and the value of life was our most-read post of the year. And for good reason.


In His Image: Questions about Abortion and the Value of Life

I turned on the TV this morning to catch the weather and ended up sitting through three commercials in a row blasting certain political candidates for their “antiquated” views on women. Though eloquently speaking of freedom, family, and choice, these advertisements revealed their bottom line: Don’t mess with a woman’s right to choose to have an abortion.

Vote! A Faith-filled Approach to Casting Ballots

Don’t you just love fall? I mean, what’s not to love? Think of the crisp mornings, the multicolored foliage, that certain glow in the mid-day sun and those oh-so-charming little yard signs! 

It is that magical time of the year when the temperatures fall and the rhetorical heat climbs. For some of us, election season is the mental equivalent of being stuck in traffic. We just want the noise to end. Others find a certain life in the fray and politics is one of the few places left to mix it up and “fight the good fight.”

The top-five countdown begins with Kate Reynolds’ entry from September 28 on faithful, God-honoring usage of Facebook and other media.


Two Years Sober: Why I Left Facebook and Haven’t Gone Back

There was once a time that Facebook was simple, and so (to be honest) was my life. I went to classes and came home, seeing all the people I really knew in the dorms, catching up with them at dinner, and enjoying late night chats in the lounges. The few people I didn't see regularly, I began to keep up with on "the Face," which gave me a little bit of insight to their lives when I gave them a phone call and got caught up that way.
