It’s here again. Orange Week returns all this week as I’m going to be bringing you ORANGE related topics! What do I mean by Orange? Orange is a color and it’s a fruit…duh! It’s also an idea. It’s the idea of creating environments in our churches that combine the best of the family (red) with the best of the church (yellow.) Get it? Red + Yellow = Orange. It’s my desire as a Children’s Pastor to work as hard as possible to bring together both entities of the church and the family to most positively impact the spiritual growth of a child. Here is the idea in a nutshell:
Two combined influences make a greater impact than just two influences.
So why this week? First of all, it’s a lead up to the Orange Conference Registration opening on Tuesday, October 5th; and it’s an excuse to creatively dream and strategize with dozens of other bloggers doing the same thing. I’ll be sharing links every day from other writers writing on much of the same strategy.
So what will you write about? I’m going to be going through our transition to the ReThink curriculum (252 Basics and First Look) here at Trinity Church. I’m going to share some about how the transition has opened things up to families and to the church. Get it? Both the red and yellow transitions!
This is all good, but what’s in it for me? I know that my writing about myself isn’t at the top of your to-do list, so I’d like to make it worth it to you. All week I’ll be collecting comments from all the Orange Week blog posts on www.jonathancliff.com…and then on Monday October 4th I will giveaway 3 virtual downloads of the newest resource from ReThink, CUE Box. Totally free, all you have to do is read and comment. (Or don’t read and just comment…whatever…)
