I’ve been reading some great Orange Week 2.0 material all over the blogosphere, and wanted to share some of my favorites. A big thanks the the Texas Giant, Kenny Conley for his daily recaps of Orange Week. I’m a thief. Most of the things that make me smart, I’ve blatantly stolen from other people. That my friend is smart!
Here is my list of great Orange Week blog posts:
Michael Bayne wrote an incredible post about the challenge of helping parents with the red side of the Orange equation. He talks about how most parents just want the student ministries to fix or entertain their kids. He’s got some great advice on how to engage parents to be red!
Zeremy Zach nailed it when it comes to student ministries become Orange. He addressed the stereotype of student ministries being isolated and “black sheep” of the church. He gives specific steps for student pastors to take to “drink the Orange juice.” This is something all the Kidmin leader will want to email to their student leaders!
Chad Swanzy posted an incredible resource on his other site, YouthLeaderStash.com
Gina McClain wrote a great post, I see RED people. I’m saying it’s her superior Oklahoma upbringing that brings us such great ideas.
Kenny gives us a reminder of what Orange should look like. Great honest post!
Sam Luce is a freaking blogging beast, and he nails it with this post about staying Yellow and doing it right!
I wish Dan Scott wrote one really great post that I could link to, but he hit homeruns all week long. Just go read it all! (On a side note, sometimes I read Dan’s blog and can hear his loud, larger than life laugh in my brain.)
Carlos Whittaker talks about his Orange Parenting, and it’s great to have a blog with as many readers as the Ragamuffin Soul community bring attention to the Orange ideology!
Gina writes another stellar post. Here’s a fantastic idea she’s done for some time on helping parents engage in the most important thing they can do as parents. Great, great stuff!
There is so much more out there, and I want to encourage you to visit all those participating in Orange Week 2.0!
