This week we at Merge we are beginning a new series on the Family.
I’m really excited about this series because we all come from a family. Good, bad, or otherwise we are all attached to some type of family unit. The good thing about what we will talk about applies to all family dynamics including how students relate to the adults in charge of their lives, how they relate to their siblings, and what God has to say about their family.
I have three specific goals for this series that I want students to walk away with:
- I want them to know what it means to honor their parents and have some practical ways of honoring them in the coming weeks.
- How students should respond and submit to the authority in our lives.
- How students can communicate more effectively with their parents.
Each week during merge we will come up with 2 take home challenges for them do during the next week.
One thing I want to ask you as parents on the front end of the series, is for you to be open to your student looking for ways to change how they relate to you (in a good way). I’m praying that God does something very special in your families through this series and that He turns what can be a challenging time, into something that forever changes the relationship between parents and students.
I will be posting regularly on how the series is going and specifics on what I hope is changing in your home.
As always thank you for the opportunity to serve you and your family.
