About EncourAGEnet

EncourAGEnet's purpose is linking, equipping, encouraging, and celebrating post-retirement service.

 

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.

2020 LEA award nominations… Nomination details and online forms are now available in 14 categories—including Distinguished Retired Lutheran Educator “EncourAGING” Award. Deadline for nominations is October 25.

Back for another round of wisdom and humor… Check out the October issue of Rich and Charlie Resources.

This might be good reading/discussion material: Freedom, Limits, and the Right to Happiness (Trevin Wax in Kingdom People). Contemplate the big difference a preposition can make!

In the news… Impeachment talk remains rampant. Get an interesting point of view in How to Think About Impeachment: Timely Words from Chuck Colson (John Stonestreet in Breakpoint Daily).

Chronic illness plaguing you? See Living Life with a Chronic Condition (Sara Correnti for Concordia Plan Services).

Retired LEA devotion… Since this publication is especially for veteran educators, perhaps you would enjoy access to a retired LEA devotion. See “Occupational Hazard” from 2007.

For your listening pleasure—and thinking… Christianity and the Rise of Science (Kip Allen and Gregory Seltz on KFUO radio).

Got 53 minutes to spare? You might spend them well by watching The Bioethics of Making, Taking, &Faking Life by Megan Almon for Summit Ministries. Jeff Myers, one of the convocation keynoters, is president of Summit Ministries, a strong protagonist of the Christian worldview.

Wonderful baseball story as we approach the post season… Sermon on the Mound (Rich Bimler in Resurrection Resource/Rich and Charlie Resources).

2020 LEA award nominations… Nomination details and online forms are now available in 14 categories—including Distinguished Retired Lutheran Educator “EncourAGING” Award. Deadline for nominations is October 25.

LEA Convocation… Not too late to register! Plan to attend the EncourAGEnet Workshop and Lunch, a pre convocation feature to hear LCMS Director of Schools Rebecca Schmidt and to meet and fellowship with other retired educators. All this and also the opportunity to interact with students who are planning to teach in Lutheran schools.


Retired LEA devotion… Since this publication is especially for veteran educators, perhaps you would enjoy access to a retired LEA devotion. See “Student IDs” from 2004.
