Happy New Year! This list captures what readers found particularly moving over the year and can help us gain perspective on 2012. It is somewhat subjective and incomplete, since this blog did not formally start until June, and a few pieces have been moved to other parts of the Beliefnet site. Yet, it is a snapshot in time. May the coming year be one of joy, health and peace!
