This is my last post at God & Country, and in the spirit of the season, I'd like to close out with a year-end list. I launched this blog a little more than a year ago, when I had some doubts about there being enough religion and politics news in a nonelection year to sustain it. More than 600 posts later, those doubts have faded.

Here's my list of favorite, most full of impact, and most newsworthy 10 posts of the year. Thanks for reading!
