Excuse me!

There was a time when I wouldn’t talk about this subject.  But I recently read the book Walter The Farting Dog, and it seems there are no subjects that are off limits, so here we go.

 

When I am alone in the house and I burp, or make some other gastrointestinal sound, I say excuse me.  Even when there is no one anywhere near me.  Even when there is no one else in the building! 

 

Why do you suppose this is true?  Training; early, consistent, persistent…

Systems, Processes and the great F1 outage of 2011

So, if you use Fellowship One, you know that there were significant issues with Check In today. Even if you don’t use F1, you might have seen the traffic on twitter about the issues. I know that for some churches, the slow-down was crippling. Most of the morning, I was watching the twitter stream and saw all kinds of tweets. Most were encouraging, some were certainly frustrated. I…

Put Feet to Their Faith With a Project Through Samaritan's Purse to Provide Mosquito Nets for Families!

As you work with the children in your ministry this summer, consider involving them in projects to raise money for bed nets treated with natural insecticide to kill mosquitoes and keep children safe and healthy. Just $10 provides one of these nets, and sends people who share the good news of Jesus with the people who receive the nets!

Jak and the Scarlet Thread update

I reviewed the hard copy proof of Jak and the Scarlet Thread the publisher sent me, read the whole thing with a fine tooth comb, and found a whole slough of typos! At first I felt a little dumb, but then I read an article from a publisher who said that that’s NORMAL. Big sigh of relief.

So I fixed them and sent the revised version back to the publisher. I should have a new proof hard copy by the end of next week. If all goes…

What will we be willing to do?

As July comes to a close I am blessed with the memories of July’s past, where 400 or more teens and adults joined together to make one of the best Vacation Bible School experiences in the country.  Over one thousand children attended, but even more spectacularly, hundreds of children became Christ followers.  When we look at the first decade of the new century (between 2001 and 2008) close to two thousand children became Christians as a result of Vacation Bible School that I was blessed… Continue

Teaching Kids from a Worldview Perspective

When I was finishing seminary I had to do a research paper that dramatically changed the way I view teaching, curriculum, and the outcomes we seek in kidmin.  I researched the idea of Biblical worldview, how it is shaped, and why it matters.  Someone’s worldview is the lens through which he/she views the world and…

What Do You Do To Measure the "Success" of Your Children's Ministry?

If we want our ministries to be genuinely effective and successful, we need to regularly ask questions to help measure where we really are and how effective we truly are. If we do not regularly ask the "hard" questions of everything we do, there isn't a way for us to truly tell how effective we are. Consider the following questions and if you are, or should be, asking them -

Last Two Sundays: The Ten Lepers & The Good Shepherd

Two weeks ago in SojournKids, we studied the story of the Ten Lepers from Luke 17:11-21. We learned that:

  • Jesus hears our cries for help.
  • Only Jesus saves outcasts and sinners.
  • We should praise Jesus and say “thank you,” because he is merciful.

You can download the SojournKids “At Home” sheet here.

Last week, we heard how Jesus is the Good Shepherd from John 10.…
