GLEnet Tips

You will want to read Karin Semler’s “Learning is a Treasure” in the latest issue of Shaping the Future.

Quality… Teacher Magazine comments on Assessing Global Competence.

Take your temperature…
Why Warmth Is the Underappreciated Skill Leaders Need (KelloggInsight). (BoardSource SmartBrief) You might recognize it as agape.

Need a better grasp of Christian worldview? Check out a resource from Summit Ministries (while ignoring references to decision theology). (Thanks to Roy Faletti for this lead.)

Extended learning… Why We Need to Teach Kids the“What’s Next?” Mindset (Focus2Achieve).

Considering a change? “… we also need to remember that it may not matter to the Holy Spirit in which Peoria we decide to teach. If two congregations have extended Calls, we may in faith exercise our freedom to move to Kansas or to stay in Illinois. Assuming our ministry will be productive in either place, our Savior may encourage us to choose for ourselves.” (Jane Fryar in chapter 11 of A Teacher of the Church, edited by Russ Moulds, Wipf and Stock Publishers, 2007.)
