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.

EncourAGEnet Bulletin


Network! The same listserv that delivers your weekly bulletin is a place to post questions and get answers and a place to respond to the questions of your colleagues. Post to encouragenet@listserv.cuchicago.edu. And “reply to all” when responding to others.

Share your faith story… ALOA tells how you can do it. (Thanks to David Bever for this lead.)

Makes life better… How to Find Thanks and Gratitude (Jesse Lyn Stoner for Seapoint Center). Oh, as good as it feels to be grateful, remember to send your thanks-giving in the right direction.

It happens… When the Holidays Aren’t Happy (Bob Russell in Biblical Leadership).

Learn from Chippie the parakeet… Do You Feel Like You’re in a Valley This Christmas? (Keith Haney in The Light Breaks Through).


Retired LEA devotion… Since this publication is especially for veteran educators, perhaps you would enjoy access to a retired LEA devotion. See “It’s Better to Receive Than to Give” from 2001.

So give your eyes a rest. See the video clips linked in Discovering Lutheran Theology (Gene Veith in Cranach blog/Patheos).

Maybe you have some screen time to explore what is billed as the world’s largest library—Library of Congress.
