Most Tuesdays of the year, I run a series on Facebook (and, to a lesser extent, Twitter and Instagram) called #TemporalTuesdays. It features a quote that somehow inspires awe an humility in the face of time or eternity, usually from a theological source but sometimes also from literature. I love these quotes not only because it is a great challenge for me to seek them out, but it also gives me some insight into the kinds of things people like and are inspired by.
As this year begins to come to a close, here is a round up of the top 5 #TemporalTuesdays posts from this year, as calculated by the number of shares and overall reach on Facebook… Enjoy!
