Anyone used Resurrection Eggs for Easter?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Lynda Freeman May 25, 2014. 4 Replies

We have used them a few times in the past. Last year we turned it into an outreach, and it was pretty cool. I know many people think Resurrection Eggs are a thing of the past. What do you think?Here…Continue

Depression and Ministry

Just curious-- has depression affected you and your ministry?A quick search for depression here on cmconnect pulls up lots of articles and resources concerning depression and those we minister to, but not much personal experience.I guess I can understand that because it is not a popular topic of discussion, especially coming from someone in ministry leadership. It sometimes feels like we have to be superhuman, and because we are in ministry we should be above something like depression. I have a…See More

You can listen to that discussion here

I have also put together a link of some other useful resources that could…

The illustrations and presentation of all of the books in the Action Bible series would rival any of the popular comic books on the market.

In case you haven't seen the Action Bible for yourself, David C Cook is…
