About EncourAGEnet

LEA EncourAGEnet was established in 2008. Among the Network's goals are to

·        prepare LEA members for post-retirement service

·        showcase examples of post-retirement service options

·        disseminate information about opportunities for service and resource people and  materials

·        encourage LEA connection to non-members by offering access to an e-mail distribution list, website, and Shaping the Future magazine.

Happy Valentine’s Day! (You didn’t hear it here.)

When LEADnet was just a baby… Roy Kaiser has written a brief history of DLESP, the predecessor of LEADnet. Those who have been “around awhile” may enjoy We’ve Come a Long Way. Thanks, Roy! Especially meaningful on the eve of the 2019 National Administrators Conference.

Do you have an LEA story of yore? It’s okay if your yore isn’t everyone’s yore. You’re free to tell (almost) anything but fake news. (See article below) Why not tell the story—like Roy did above. Send it to ed.grube@lea.org.

The need remains great: Separating Truth From Misinformation (Bob and Judith Wright in GRAND). Eve and Adam had trouble with it. So has everyone since!

Ever heard of the Curse of Cassandra? Ever heard of Super Seniors? Do some hearing from Just Watching By Charlie.

Retired LEA devotion… Since this publication is especially for veteran educators, perhaps you would enjoy access to a retired LEA devotion. See “The Forecast: Rain” from 2006.

Heart and Seoul… Devotion and news from Pastor Bob and Alice: Keep Me and Keep All newsletter. Good to hear from our long-time LEA friends again!

You are there!
On Living in a Post-Christian Context by Tim Challies (@Challies blog).

To you and for you… Thank God for Gray-Haired Brothers Who Cheer You On (The Gospel Coalition).

A story worth repeating—or at least passing to others: Older Adults: An Overlooked Ministry Resource? (Paula Schleuter Ross in Reporter). “Older adults are a ministry for the future.”

Get your February chuckles. The February installment of Rich and Charlie Resources is now available. Poignant Valentine’s thoughts too.

Retired LEA devotion… Since this publication is especially for veteran educators, perhaps you would enjoy access to a retired LEA devotion. See “Everyone is Looking for You” from 2003.
