This is my 1,500th blog post here at So What Faith, which offers an appropriate reason to to reflect. As I do so, I want to thank my readers. While you come from all over the world, the vast majority reside in the United States.

After nearly 5 1/2 years of writing, I recognize just how unpredictable popularity can be. In fact only a few of the posts I would have guessed would be among my most popular all time ranked in the top 25. Consider clicking through to a few posts that others have found to be of interest.

I completed my doctoral degree in 2006, moved to Florida in 2007, and launched this blog in 2009. Since launching the site, I have served three congregations in Southwest Florida –
- First Presbyterian Church – Naples, FL
- Naples United Church of Christ – Naples, FL
- United Church of Marco Island – Marco Island, FL –
and have taught religion at Hodges University.
With each transition, my primary ministerial focus has changed. With each such change, the blog has shifted a bit as well. As 2015 begins, I will begin a new role as Transitional Minister at Fort Myers Congregational UCC (Fort Myers, FL). I look forward to that opportunity, and to the continued evolution of So What Faith.
As I begin thinking about content for 2015, I welcome your input.
