WHY WOMEN ARE CRITICAL TO THE CHURCH’S MISSION
by Katie McCoy – Radical Blog
While Scripture teaches that God has given the responsibility of the pastoral role to men (1 Timothy 2:12; 3:1-13, Titus 1:6-9), there are a myriad of meaningful ministries for women. Unfortunately, many women culture mistakenly associate being “out front” or “in charge” with being more valuable. However, when we shift our focus away from the few roles God has reserved for men, we’ll find that the ministries available to women are part of the lifeblood of a local church’s witness to the world.
Mark Zuckerberg: Facebook Can Fill the Role Played by Churches
by FoxNews Insider – The Story with Martha MacCallum
Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg wants his social network to fill the role that churches and social clubs once did in communities.
During a speech at the first Facebook Communities Summit last week, Zuckerberg said membership in all kinds of groups has declined in the last several decades.
“That’s a lot of of people who now need to find a sense of purpose and support somewhere else,” Zuckerberg said, promoting Facebook’s large community-support groups as a substitute.
Raising Kids Who Love God and Serve Others (Audio)
By Dr. Joshua Straub – Family Talk with Dr. James Dobson
So often we feel alone as parents. But we aren’t supposed to do it alone. Raising kids who love God and love others doesn’t have to be filled with shame. We don’t have to fear that we’re somehow messing them up. In this episode, we break down Proverbs 22:6, and how we can raise our children “in the way.”
Leading our children in “the way,” is about the environment we raise them in. Which is why we created a community called TwentyTwoSix. A way to connect with our kids at a heart level. Without needing to add anything more to our already busy day, we lay out content for the four key times of the day prescribed by Moses–morning prayers, drive-time games, dinnertime stories, and bedtime questions.
