September Update From Your LifeWay Consultant

This is a busy time of the year for leadership training. Perhaps you have already had a training event for the Sunday School leaders in your church or have one coming up soon.

I've been involved in several such events already this season, four in the last four days in fact. Each has reminded me of the many faithful leaders in many out of the way kind of places all over our land. They week in and week out are making a huge impact for the Kingdom without recognition or notice. They have blessed me and reminded me why Sunday School workers are so special in the life of every church everywhere.

I wanted to pass along to you the highlights of things that have landed in my Inbox the past few weeks. I am sure you will find something among this list that will encourage you or meet an interest or need that you have.
