  1. The Mess We’ve Made of Ordination
  2. The Local Church is Killing Adventist Education : I wrote this in 2011 yet it received new life and a great many readers again this year.
  3. A Sincere Inquiry to Those Opposed to Women’s Ordination
  4. A Nice Man, But Still the Same System
  5. The Four Most Important Evangelists in The Adventist Church I’m not sure how this is marked to have it found so often in google, but this post from 2013 has a consistent stream of readers.
  6. I Miss My Friend!  a lament following the death of one of my closest friends, it still hurts.
  7. A Response to Elder Stephen Bohr’s “Reflections on Deborah & Huldah” I’m not sure if it is Steve Bohr fans or foes that continue reading it, but it continues to be well read.
  8. The Superiority of Adventist Education This one was also written in 2011 but continues to be a main stay on the leaderboard of posts.
  9. Multifarious Thoughts on Women’s Ordination What a shocker another post on women’s ordination that gained traction in 2015
  10. How I Hope Adventists Will Respond to the Kenneth Copeland/Pope Francis Video The interesting thing to note, the individual, Tony Palmer, that facilitated this entire thing died shortly after this in a motorcycle accident.
  11. The Ordained Women Pastors of China Still love this video no matter how many times I see it!
  12. Random Thoughts Concerning GYC & The ONE Project: There is actually no link to this post because I removed it. I removed it because there was such a defensive reaction by both groups, but in particular ONE Project supporters that I felt it wasn’t worth the hassle. However, after I removed it several associated with the ONE Project said I should have left it up and informed me they appreciated the perspective. You’ll just have to trust me it was well read 🙂
  13. Sometimes You Have to Ask More Than Once to Get to Yes
  14. Why The Recent Rhetoric in the Church Makes Me Want to Shout About “SPIRITUAL FORMATION”
  15. Women’s Ordination: The Greatest Danger It seems only fitting that the first and last on this list are related to women’s ordination, a topic that very much dominated the thoughts of many in this General Conference Session Year.

Thank you for reading in 2015. I hope you’ll join me and invite your friends to read along as well in 2016. There will be at least one post every day in 2016 because I am blogging through the Bible daily in 2016. So check-in every day.
