The Children's Ministry Blog Patrol (July 2009)

Childrens Ministry Blog PatrolWelcome to the unveiling of the new format for the Blog Patrol. What started as a weekly feature summarizing some of the best articles from the Christian Blogosphere has morphed into a monthly feature focused on Children’s Ministry. Thus, you will note the new name (The Children’s Ministry Blog Patrol) and the new graphic.

I haven’t worked out all of the particulars about how this might look each month, but I hope you will find the articles linked to in this feature useful. In addition to articles directly related to Children’s Ministry, this blog will also feature more general articles on children and parenting from a Christian perspective. I haven’t set a schedule in stone yet, but I’m hoping to publish each month’s blog patrol on the first Tuesday of the month.
