Three years ago today, Red Letter Christians went live! As I’ve written the past two days (Friday and Saturday), many individuals and articles have led to our success and we wouldn’t be here today without the countless contributions, comments, and discussion.
For today I’d like to look back at those articles that sparked a nerve and a new conversation. These are pieces that drew significant traffic, debate, and discussion across the web, not just on RLC. And if some of these pieces are unfamiliar then take a few minutes to read through one or two and join the conversation…enjoy!
