I smiled at an email today saying this blog had the top clicked story by staff at Baptist House this year. Thank you to those who visit here and interact with what I write. But I also want to use this as an opportunity to say thank you to the staff who work for the BUGB and the Associations. In all my dealings with folk who work in Baptist House I’ve not yet met someone who doesn’t work hard and care about what they do. I have the privilege of seeing what some of them do behind the scenes and they deserve our gratitude. Let’s not forget that the large majority who work in the Associations or at Baptist House are putting into practice strategy and policy which they have been given by Council, committees, Trustees, etc. On occasions the questions and discussions in blogs, at Council and elsewhere can make them feel undervalued or unsettled; yet while I blog about the future of the denomination, Union and finance these folk get on with doing the job they have been given.
For those of you who get the BUGB email news sweep or are interested in stats the most visited pages of this blog this year are:
