Note: I wrote a regular column for the United Methodist Reporter from the beginning of 2005 until UMR Communications, Inc., ceased operations and shuttered the print edition of the Reporter at the end of May 2013. Over those 8 1/2 years, I penned well over 150 columns for the newspaper. I am providing links here only to the columns from 2012 and 2013.
