Entrust’s Mid-Atlantic hub held its inaugural training July 30-Aug. 5 in Maryland. Thirteen women took our foundational small group leadership module, Facilitating Relational Learning. Participants and facilitators came from 13 churches, eight states and many life stages. The ladies learned and laughed a lot, according to hub coordinator Trish Barrett. Trish received comments including “beyond expectations,” “not like any other training,” and “learned a lot about myself as well as about facilitating.”
Middle kids, stand up and be counted! Today is your day — National Middle Child Day. Rather than feel sorry for yourself, rather than buy all that stuff about being a “poor, lost, middle kid,” remember, middle kids are often more likely to become entrepreneurs, leaders, award-winners. Consider Abraham Lincoln, Bill Gates, Anne Hathaway, Julia Roberts, John F. Kennedy, Teddy Roosevelt, Warren Buffet.
Better yet, consider this. “There are no middle children in God’s family.” That’s the title of blogger Aaron Armstrong’s post of Sept. 4, 2016 (http://www.bloggingtheologically.com/?s=middle+child). Referencing Gal. 3:27-29, Armstrong says, “The Father’s affection for each of us is always more than we can imagine. He always has time to hear from each one of us. In Christ, there are no middle kids.”
Remind the “middle kids” in your world today of their tremendous value to you, society and most of all, to God!
Ever been surprised by doing something you thought you couldn’t do well and seeing something really good as a result? Entrust’s Ester A. knows the feeling. Click below to find her story.
During these lazy, hazy days of summer, try to learn about your cross-generational friend’s thoughts on time. Ask your friend what she likes to do when she has nothing to do. Is she comfortable with having “nothing to do?” Is there a difference between what he says he likes to do and what he actually does with free time? Is she at peace with how she uses her time? Ask, listen, absorb and learn!
