2) I got the above video from my friend Tony Kummer's website. If you're interested in God-centered, theologically driven children's education, visit his page. Tony is a thoughtful guy and is very practically gifted. His site has much to offer you, particularly if you're working with children, as he is a pastor of children's ministry (and a fellow Said at Southern editor).
3) My friend Reid Monaghan has a great blog I would encourage you to check out. Reid leads young adult ministry at Fellowship Bible Church in Nashville and is a dynamic, gifted leader. Reid's a little more punchy than I am, but he has some great writing on his blog. He is planning on planting a church in New Jersey in the next year in an area known as one of America's least Christian places (near Rutgers University). I have a heart for people trying to minister to the northeast and New England and I encourage you to visit the site of his prospective plant, Jacob's Well. The video alone will deeply move you and encourage you to pray for Reid as he seeks to win the lost souls of New Jersey.
That's all for now. Hope everyone has a good weekend and is encouraged by and encouraging to the ministry of their local church. We here in Louisville are gearing up for a new semester. Classes start again on Monday. One more semester and I will have earned a Master's of Divinity. As you can imagine, I'm excited for classes to begin and hopeful that I come away with a whole trunkload of knowledge from this semester. Whatever you're up to these days, I hope you benefit richly as well. 'Til next time.
