Here's what we've been reading online this week:

Jen Thorn had a post entitled "When Jesus Isn't Enough". The title enough was enough to draw me in. She came to this realization when, "... that my heart has wandered to a place where Jesus isn’t enough. Where his providence is not appreciated and his goodness is doubted." We all can get to the same place and need to be reminded of all God has done our behalf.

Jason Allen had a post about sitting next to kids. Most adults find this can be annoying (even if they are our kids). Dr. Allen gives us seven reasons to put our preferences aside. This post is a helpful reminder for those churches that have kids in corporate worship (or a reason to have them there).

The ERLC (The Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission) had a post on talking to kids about sex. This is typically one of the hardest conversations parents have with their kids. It reads in part, "Children are exposed to sexually charged programming, information and contact at an increasingly earlier age. So, we need to be intentional in playing offense. If we play defense, we’ll have to deconstruct what they've heard first. We want to be the ones who frame how our kids see the world." (emphasis added) Parents, read this it's helpful. Pastors, pass this along to the parents in your church.
