So, here we go. I have had it on my heart for a little while now to start a blog that is solely for parents who are trying to learn how to parent their kids from the foundation of grace, to believe Christ’s love, and then be compelled to live on mission with Him. Thus, SentKids.com or Missional Parenting.com, whichever you used to find us. 🙂
There are plenty of resources out there for parents espousing cookie-cutter techniques and formulas for fool-proof parenting. This is not one of those resources. There are also, in the Christian context, plenty of resources out there for parents that equip for moralism and self-absorbed spirituality rather than for Gospel-centered living and love-compelled mission. This is not one of those resources, either.
Jesus, the Sent One, declared His followers now to be the sent ones. Mission is not a program or project we tack onto our Christian development efforts. Discipleship and evangelism and mission were never dichotomized by Jesus. People did that. We have shifted our course away from Christ’s intentions for His church toward individualized, self-improvement discipleship concepts that normally through guilt and obligation include a service project or mission trip every now and then. This doesn’t sound like a sent life.
What SentKids.com is proposing we are not guaranteeing. Our kids aren’t old enough yet to have evidenced the veracity if our claims. However, we have seen enough early fruit to be committed to this pathway, and we felt compelled to share with what we are learning so as to sharpen one another along the way. Raising kids is tough, and we need each other.
So, what are we proposing? Click on the “suggestions” link above to find out! 🙂
And what next? Well, we are finishing a few ebooks to be released this year. AND, we will try to post stories, anecdotes, and resources a few times a week to encourage and equip parenting for SENT kids!!!
Thanks for stopping by!!!
