2009 in (brief) review

Links to a few of the 300-something posts this past year:

A Baker's Dozen
What say ye?
To respect
New book, available in July
A tree's story
Every Church a Seminary
Restoring Integrity in Baptist Churches: a Review
Restoring Integrity: our view of God
Latin, Greek and Hebrew
The troubles of Job
The Holy Kiss
The Relationship of Christians and Government
Proorizo in the King James Bible
My word shall not return void

Time, with an unwearied hand,
Pushes round the seasons past,
And in life's frail glass, the sand
Sinks apace, not long to last:
Many, well as you or I,
Who last year assembled thus;
In their silent graves now lie,
Graves will open soon for us!

By John Newton

This past year certainly had its share of defining moments and some surprises, as they always do. As with each new year, there is always a certain amount of mystery involved at the thought of entering unchartered territory.

We lost more of our heroes. Whether they played a major role in shaping our land, or on a more personal level, they were still heroes. I refer to them as the "tall oaks." There was a popular song of over 20 years ago titled, "Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes." I think the question still remains unanswered.

New Year's resolutions are still made by many. Maybe it would be better if we had daily resolutions. The focus might not be lost as easily.
