My Top 10 Faith Posts of 2013
For the last week of the year, I’m highlighting 2013’s top posts in my key categories on the days those categories are most likely to be featured, and today I present my Top 10 Faith Posts of 2013.
I thought it would be interesting to look at the top posts by category for the year.
Friday is the day I publish posts relating to faith, and I’m happy to report that this category was higher ranked this year than in years past.
Here’s a list of my top 10 Faith posts of 2013 according to stats.

An email making the rounds about a church’s plan to invite the “less committed” to worship elsewhere caused a ruckus. But if the email had turned out to be genuine, would it have really been a good idea?
As the Supreme Court began debating marriage equality earlier this year, Facebook and Twitter users began displaying red equal signs as their profile images. Christians counter-attacked with red crosses. For some of us, you can’t adequately sum up all of the feelings of the matter with one little icon.
For a handful of pastors out there, the question should be, “What happened to leading by example?”
