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

Chelsea Kingston had a post on the Gospel Coalition on parents idolizing education. She says, "The god of academic achievement convinces us to take on college debt that will enslave us for many years." And later on in the post, "So is the antidote to run from education? No, the antidote is to redeem it." Pastors, parents, and students, this is a wise word.

Scott Sauls wrote a post on his blog on the topic of "special needs". He concludes his post this way, "... the kingdom belongs to children…and we all have special needs … and in Jesus, we all belong." This is a great reminder for those of who work with kids. 

John Hailes had a post on simple ways to pastor kids. His list is as appropriate as it is practical. He ends his post this way, "The more we love kids, the more they will be willing to open up their hearts to us and essentially God!"
