Convocation keynote livestream…
LEA is pleased to livestream Jeff Myer’s keynote address from 8:30–10:00 Friday morning, October 11. The title is “The Fast Track to Understanding the World of Ideas.” You can connect with this link: https://livestream.com/Inspirmedia/LEA2019.

Public policy (that other kingdom)… Evangelicals Care More About Healthcare, Economy Than Religious Liberty, Abortion (Jordyn Pair in Disrn).

Revolutionary suggestion… Teach Students to Think Through Problems—Not Google Them (Reshan Richards & Stephen Valentine in EdSurge).

Alert your families (or supply them) with a new CPH magazine called Lutheran Life. See Gene Veith’s article on the magazine (Cranach blog).

You’ve probably heard of Camp Restore New Orleans. Now see Camp Restore Detroit. Perhaps a new source for service projects and chapel offerings?

Starting October 13… Touche, Cliché is the new series of LEA weekly devotions.
A cliché seems a lot like an abbreviated proverb, that literary genre that occupies a prominent place in Scripture. But consider the cliché a verbal object lesson, with Scripture breathing new life into tired phrases. Written for LEA educators.

The next issue of LEAnews will be October 15. Stop by LEA Central and say hi if you’re at the convocation. Network publications will resume October 16.

Dress right! Convocation participants planning to participate in the Wake Up and Move or Jazzercise should plan to wear comfortable clothes commensurate with the amount of huffing and puffing they plan to produce. Wake Up and Move is Friday and Saturday mornings from 6:30–7:00. Jazzercise (with a trained leader) is Friday and Saturday morning from 6:30–7:15. No pre-registration is necessary.

Not surprising…
Modern Research About Happiness Repeatedly Parallels Biblical Principles (Randy Alcorn for eternal perspective ministries). But remember, true happiness comes from knowing the Gospel of Jesus Christ, especially in times of unhappiness.

Don’t Buy Cheap Chocolate.
