- Last week – Part 1
- Conference in Oklahoma: https://www.teleiosconference.com/
- This week – some of the feedback I have received and reflections
Question that always comes to mind for me: “How do we consider this generation in light of their growing up in an age that was completely taken over by the internet? How has that affected them and how do we get them back to Jesus?” We all seek comfort, peace, joy, community, safety, and especially purpose. Showing them the most excellent way is going to be important, but also fully addressing the notions of women’s roles in the church and the LGBTQ+ community as both of those are major points for this upcoming generation.
Conversational teaching in the round, learning together.
