Orange Week 2.0 – Day #1 Recap

Orange Week Recap Day 1 I am excited to announce the start of Orange Week 2010. Early this year, a handful of bloggers started Orange Week to more fully investigate the Orange Strategy. Starting yesterday, they decided to do it again – this time focusing on the more practical aspects of Orange. I was invited to participate and opted to do so through Kidmin1124.com because I thought the volunteer and bi-vocational focus of that site may offer a differing perspective. You can read my introduction to the series over on Kidmin1124 here, and I won’t bother to repeat that information. The Monthly Children’s Ministry Blog Patrol is due out next Tuesday, but rather than triple the size of that with Orange Week entries, I have decided to dedicate the next week here on Dad in the Middle to Orange Week. Each morning around 8:00 EST, I will publish a consolidation of all Orange Week entries from the prior day. If you missed any, you’ll be able to catch them here. Plus, I decided there was going to be so much information out there that these summaries will allow you to “come back” to the information when you have more time and not miss any posts. Each day, I will also post a set of links to all of the blogs which I know of that are participating for your reference.

Make sure to check the giveaway over on Kidmin1124 as well. Unfortunately, I don’t have a giveaway to go along with these summaries, but maybe I will see if I can come up with something Orange.

There are two parts to this initial entry. Beginning Monday, and continuing into yesterday, many bloggers offered a brief introduction to the Orange philosophy and Orange Week. These are included in the Intro Posts category. Day One was officially supposed to related to Red Initiatives. As you can see many of the participants stuck to that while many went their own route. Regardless, there is much to learn from all of them!
