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

Tim Challis wrote a post on parenting. He says, "Do not provoke with impatience and injustice, but instead shepherd with nurture and tenderness, and do this through discipline and instruction." Parents, we'd all be wise to read this one.

Kenny Conley wrote a post on when to promote kids to the next class. He's asks the question about beginning of the school year or the end of the year, and then gives reasons for both. As ministry leaders, this is worth considering.

KidzMatter had a post by Mark Conner on creativity. He wrote, "It’s so easy to become busy managing what currently exists (working IN the organization), that we fail to take time to improve what we’re doing, let alone consider doing things differently or doing new things (working ON the organization). As leaders, we must work on tomorrow, not just keep up with today. This is what innovation is all about." While I struggle with this in the sense that I want to tread carefully and not let creativity get before truth; this is a good reminder of the need to brainstorm and dream about how things could be better.
