This Friday marks the two year "blogoversary" of St. Stephen's Musings.
When I first started out on November 26th 2002, I never thought 456 individual posts and 3,766 reader comments would follow. (Of course, one wonders if my contribution has been little more than "idle words" ... I hope not!)
For your faithful reading, insightful, spirited, charitable dialogue, and fervent prayers I thank you, dear readers.
Like last year's collection, the following "Best of 2004" list contains a small sample of my favorite posts, some of my more controversial rants, as well as several musings that drew a sizable number of comments and further discussion.
