Take a guess, what do you think was the most viewed blog post in 2013? Faith Church added a new traditional worship service back in June, and I wrote quite a bit about worship over the last year. In fact, my post entitled “Could Starting An Addition Worship Service Be Of The Devil” was the blog’s #2 post in 2013 with 222 views. “Why I Dislike Church Worship Surveys Very, Very Much” was 4th with 170 views. “Follow up to Do We Need to Stop Singing in Worship?” made the top ten also.
But not all that talk about worship got the top spot. There was something else. Sometime more important, something that pulls us in, that fuels our lives, that inspires us.
In fact the top post was not only the top post of the year, but it was almost always in the top five viewed posts of every single week of the year. People were searching for it. People wanted to know more about it.
What was so interesting, so engaging?
That’s right. The top post of the year is all about coffee. Last year for Christmas, Michelle bought us one of Starbucks’ refillable January travel mugs. Free coffee for a month! But was it worth it? After the month was over, I wrote some reflections, and that has become the most popular post on the blog with 294 views.
Grab a cup of coffee, and enjoy the post again: Reflections On A Month of Free Coffee From Starbucks.
Here’s looking to a wonderful New Year, and all that God will do in and through us at Faith Church!
