My friends at David C. Cook have a new product for churches and families, and I’d love to share it with you. Rio is a new family-friendly digital curriculum that helps churches and families foster a deeper relationship with God and a life of faith that is rich and full. Kids learn how to experience God, discern His voice, and know the Spirit s powerful work in their lives.
Rio believes that our faith is a relational one, and that the best way to grow people in the faith is to help them deepen their relationship with God and others. We strive to engage relationships at all levels within your children’s ministryâ€”leader to child, child to child, child to parent, parent to leaderâ€”all within the context of a relationship with God.
This focus on knowing God will produce in children a desire to obey Godâ€”not obedience through their own power, but obedience through the power provided by the Holy Spirit. By keeping the focus on God and responding to Him, Rio strives to produce a transformational faith that will reproduce itself for generations to come.
An ordinary father wants to leave an extraordinary legacy and sets out to revisit his father s past in hopes of helping his son face the future. Set in Eastern Kansas, it s a story of regret, of reconciliation and of hope, exploring the complex relationship between a father and son.
Radical: Three Years Later – Just over three years ago, a little orange book titled Radical was published. In the post the author, David Platt looks back on the success of the book, and it’s impact on reader and his own church in the 3 years since publication. Personally, this book has been a great inspiration for Starr and I. Couldn’t encourage someone to read it more!
