The official news service of the Trans-European Division of the Seventh-day Adventist church



31 December 2018 | St Albans [Victor Hulbert]  

Which articles have attracted the most attention during 2018? The list below is generated by Google Analytics and covers the 12 months January – December.

EPC18 Raafat changeThe most read article for the entire year is the pastoral message written by TED president, Raafat Kamal, following the GC compliance document vote in October 2018. Other top stories through the year (but not necessarily top in a particular month,) include reconciliation leading to a mass ordination service in Hungary, the start of Adventist Radio London, and ‘How do you write a theme song’.

These are the statistics based on the TED website, but many articles have also been translated for use in local Unions, or have been reposted on partner websites at the General Conference and elsewhere.

In looking back we reflect on God’s leading over the past year and his promised blessings for the year to come.

Equally, as we come the close of 2018 a big thank you to the many communicators and volunteers across the Trans-European Division who have contributed to tedNEWS – and thanks to you for reading and sharing.
