Blog Birthday: One Year of Engaging The Shadows

While I had a rather unofficial blog for a while now, at last year’s Simply Youth Ministry Conference I decided to start blogging in earnest and continue on this track as long as I can.  I’ve included my top posts for the past year (3 per month) to both celebrate where I’ve been and give some of my newer readers a chance to look back into the past year!
