A Look Back at 2012

Erik Cooper —  December 31, 2012 — Leave a comment

It’s always good to reflect back, even as you look forward. Now that it’s all said and done, 2012 was a year of dramatic change for me and my family:

We sold a house.

Lived with my in-laws for 5 months.

Bought a new place.

And I transitioned from co-pastor of City Community Church to VP of Charitable Development for Community Reinvestment Foundation.

It was also a year of travel and adventure:

We took my oldest daughter to New York City to celebrate her thirteenth birthday.

My wife went to Cambodia.

The family took our annual Spring Break trek to Destin, Florida.

Mandy and I took a ministry team to Honduras.

A family getaway to Gatlinburg.

And I somehow found myself once again in the Holy Land (just weeks before missile fire began raining down on Tel Aviv).

What a crazy-beautiful-sad-joyous-transitional-celebration of a year! What anticipation for the year to come!

Thanks to all of you who share my pontifications on a weekly basis here at BeyondTheRisk. My stats sheet say this site was somehow visited over 27,000 times this year. Geez! I’m not sure how many real human people that represents, but if you’re reading this you’re the one that matters. Thank you! I love writing, and I love that a few of you choose to read and interact with what I have to share here. I hope we can do it more in 2013.

Here are the top seven (greater than 5 less than 10, yes random) most-read posts from 2012:

7. A Thousand Little Prayers

6. In Defense of Church People

5. How A Broken Hip Can Birth Beautiful Things

4. It Only Takes 20 Seconds

3. The Naughty List

2. Today We Grieve

1. Why I’m Leaving Staff at City Community Church

Happy New Year! See you again Beyond The Risk in 2013…
