This past Thursday and Friday was the 2010 Orange Conference in Atlanta, Georgia. Sponsored by the ReThink Group, the conference focuses on all things children’s and family ministry. Over 4,000 people involved in children’s ministry showed up and learned from the conference. Unfortunately, I wasn’t one of them. I was grateful that many of those who did attend shared what they learned through twitter and their blogs. On Saturday, I posted My Favorite Tweets from Orange 2010, in this post I shared all the blog posts related to Orange 2010 from the last week or so. I had originally intended to include these posts as part of tomorrow’s Children’s Ministry Blog Patrol for the month of April. However, given the 85 or so articles related to the Orange conference, I decided that these posts warranted their own showcase. I tried to weed out the blog posts related to contests during the conference and announcements of live feeds and get together that are already over, but some may have slipped through. If you appreciated the work these authors did to help educate those of us who could not be there, leave them a little love in the comments on their blogs!
UPDATE: JUST A FEW MERE HOURS AFTER PUBLISHING THIS “COMPREHENSIVE” COMPILATION OF ORANGE POSTS, MY GOOGLE READER RSS FEED IS ALIVE WITH NEW INSIGHTS AND POSTS AS PEOPLE DECOMPRESS AFTER ORANGE. I EVEN STUMBLE ACROSS A COUPLE OF BLOGS THAT I HAD, FOR SOME INEXPLICABLE REASON, NOT BEEN PREVIOUSLY FOLLOWING. SO, CHECK BACK NEXT MONDAY (I AM GIVING EVERYONE A WHOLE WEEK) FOR AN UPDATE TO THIS LIST WHICH WILL INCLUDE THE ADDITIONAL POSTS. HAPPY BLOGGING!
