Each week, on Monday morning, we’ll be posting: a) a PDF of our weekly children’s bulletin from the preceding Sunday and b) a recap of the previous Sunday’s lesson for our children’s classes.

Here are this week’s tools:

A. Children’s Bulletin from August 21st 

B. Review of Children’s Classes from August 21st

Your Thursday reading is here!

Parenting in the Age of Binge-Watching: “…If a shepherd wants to help a child guard his soul, the shepherd should know something about guarding his own soul…”

Should Children Sit Through “Big Church”?: “…The greatest stumbling block for children in worship is parents who don’t cherish doing that worship. They don’t love it. Children can feel the difference between duty and delight. They know if dad loves being here…”

A Christian Parent’s Back-to-School Review: As your kiddos go back to school today, here is a heart check …. “…I’m writing strongly about our need to carve out devotional time on the schedule because the schedule is one of those things that reveal what our hearts really love. That’s right. A check of the schedule is not a cold exercise in programmed religion. It’s a hard look at the heart. It’s about idols and faith…”

Your Thursday reading is here, from around the web!

Brother, You’re Like a Six: “It’s not that attraction makes no difference, but it shouldn’t make the difference. So what should make the difference? The Bible talks about the characteristics of godly men and women. These are the things that the Lord himself considers “attractive.””

How Do I Know if My Child Has Become a Christian?: A few helpful questions to ask

God is Sovereign; We are Responsible: Thoughts on Keeping Kids Safe: “…Parents, how have you worked to reconcile your responsibility to care for your children with trusting in God as He rules and reigns over all things? Where might you need to remove distractions in order to focus on the physical and spiritual needs of those in your care? And in what areas do you need to relinquish control and place your children firmly in the Father’s care?…”

Parents and Children, Be Motivated by the Gospel: “Each day, we as parents are a witness to our children in words and actions of the abundance we have in Christ and the truth he is.”

When You’re Not a Typical Woman: “…we learn that far from being typical, we must be faithful women in the life and circumstances God has given us.”

Check out this week’s articles!

On Male Privilege: “Their authority wasn’t about their authority. Their authority wasn’t the absolute thing to preserve. Their authority was a tool. They felt responsibility for those with whom they were called to relationship and they used their authority to bless those in their care.”

The Problem of Praying for Our Children: “…when we put on gospel-centered glasses, we’re freed to pray for things that offer far more than earthly comfort. We begin to pray that God wouldn’t simply prevent every hardship that could come their way, but that he’d use them for his renown. These prayers accomplish much for my children, and replace worry with confidence in my heart.”

Let’s Teach Our Kids ‘Beautiful’: “…Are the things I am consistently putting in front of my children helping them see and enjoy God, or are they blocking the view of him?…”
