Today we celebrate our 150th post here on DioDocs! In honor of this occasion, we’d like to take a look back at some of the resources we’ve shared over the past two years of blogging. We thought it was about time that we highlight our most popular posts and topics, our awesome guest contributors, topics that have generated the most traffic and posts you may have missed along the way.
- The most popular post on DioDocs since its inception is “Empowering the Laity for Pastoral Care” from the diocesan Committee on Mental Health. “Pastoral care is how clergy and lay people answer the call to minister to each other—taking the love of Christ to one another through the ups and downs of life.”
- One of the most popular topics here on DioDocs is Stewardship Resources. Whether it’s a “Webinar Round-Up” or “Annual Pledge Campaign Resources,” we have highlighted the many stewardship resources available through the Diocese, the Episcopal Church Foundation and The Episcopal Network for Stewardship (TENS).
- We value the feedback and responses we receive from reader comments. In response to our post “Smartphone Apps, Church Style,” readers offered recommendations for apps they found especially helpful or useful in their daily spiritual life.
We have been fortunate to have somegreat guest authors share their stories and knowledge with our audience. A few of those include:
- The Rev. Kathy Guin, in her post “Focusing on God’s Abundant Grace,” tackled the question “How do we focus our hearts to look for God’s abundant grace, so that we may respond with loving generosity in all parts of our lives?”
- The Rev. David Keill highlighted his experience with paid advertising on Facebook in his post “Paying for Publicity: A Facebook Experience.”
- In his post “A Different Kind of Liturgy,” the Rev. Canon Pat Wingo offered a reflection on how we approach liturgy in the Episcopal Church.
A few posts you may have missed along the way:
- Resource Superstar: ECF – We highlighted some of the great resources from the Episcopal Church Foundation.
- Hope’s Green Journey – Bob Faithful offered a reflection on the role of the Stewardship of Creation Committee as they explore the role of faith on farm, water and environmental issues.
- #5Priorities Focus– Over the course of five weeks, we took a look at the five diocesan priorities for mission and ministry: Multicultural & Ethnic Ministries, Evangelism & Proclamation, Strengthening our Congregations, Youth & Young Adult Ministry, Mission Beyond Ourselves.
As we move toward our next goal of reaching 200 posts, we’d love to hear what content you would like to see more of and what topics or information you would like us to cover. Please take a few minutes to take this survey and share your thoughts. Thank you for reading!
