Here's what we've found helpful and encouraging this week as we've been online:
The Gospel Coalition had a repost from 2011 entitled, Why Youth Stay in Church When They Grow Up. The author is asking the question, "What is it that sets apart the kids who stay in the church?" He then goes on to list three observations. This is a good post for parents and youth pastors alike ... because both play vitally important roles.
For the Church had a post about children responding to the gospel. It starts out by saying, "Few issues weigh more heavily on Christian parents than the salvation of their children." The post goes with several encouragements.
Harvard Business Review had a post on visual systems to manage work that Jeff found. It reads in part, "... visual tools reduce email and meeting burden by showing what’s happening in a process, rather telling what’s happening." As we apply this to ministry, we potentially become more productive.
Jeff also found this post by Nate Pyle on manhood. This post is written as father writing to his son and says, "You have nothing to prove. Christ has deemed you worthy." Read what else this father wrote to his son ... because there is A LOT more. This is well worth your time.
