It’s been a little over a year since I began blogging for the Sunday school Network—many of you have been reading and commenting all along the way. Thanks for sharing the journey!
This is my last blog as the Sunday school Network guide, but you’ll still see me posting comments and even writing guest blogs now and then. That’s because I believe in The Network. I believe we are stronger when we share ideas, encourage one another, and look for the ways that God is at work in our midst. Ministry is always we rather than me. God has created and gifted us as a whole body of believers, so there’s no reason to go it alone!
Our new guide, Laura Keeley is no stranger to The Network or to CRC Sunday school ministry. In the past couple months she has offered us insight about three year olds, faithful teaching, and using symbols with kids. As the Association of Christian Reformed Educators (ACRE) coordinator she’s also been instrumental in encouraging local networks of Sunday school coordinators to meet together regularly to talk about ministry and share ideas… Now I can’t wait to see the topics she’ll bring to the table here!
My hope for the next year of the Sunday school Network is that we’ll continue to grow. That this Network would be the place we turn when we have a question about a lesson, an idea that worked for us, or a problem that could have multiple solutions. I hope we will be a community that learns together and grows together, even though we’re spread across all of North America!
