NEXT WEEK’S BIBLE READINGS     June 27-July 3, Titus 1:1-10 & Pr. 1-6

In a Nutshell:  We only have a few years to prepare our youth to learn how to love good and hate evil. By the time they are teens many habits, attitudes and dispositions are pretty well fixed.  In order to prevent a sense of entitlement it is imperative that we learn early the reality of consequences, the ability to rebound and how to interpret "bids for connection."  Is your home the tower of Babel or the Jewish temple court at Pentecost. Are you communicating in a language that is recognizable? Do you understand each other's "bid for connection"?  "No one longs for redemption more than God's longing for us!"  Title:  Synergy Milestone #3 Teens  - Adolescence can be tough! Resources to help parents and their youth develop spiritual disciplines and embrace upcoming adulthood.
