Retreat Resource List

Tara and Katrina serving at the resource table
I know ... this is usually Tasty Tuesday, but I'm going to do Tasty Tuesday on WEDNESDAY this week. ;) Tomorrow, you'll see why I did.  (Tonight is going to be great fun!)

Today, I want to share with you a list of the resources shared at our book table this past weekend at our retreat. As the speaking team, the Scripture Dig team recommended titles related to our theme of what it means to be "in the Family." We incorporated the journeys of 2 of my Dig teammates and how physical adoption has been woven into their lives, so you'll see titles related to how adoption fits with Christians. We also discovered what it is to be adopted into God's family through spiritual adoption, and we considered our part in a local church family. It was a rich time together!

Maybe you'll find a book to tuck into an Easter basket, set aside for vacation reading, or as a study with a friend over the summer.

I always love reading book lists. I recently read Friendship for Grown-Ups.

I would add The Good News We Almost Forgot by Kevin DeYoung which is a book on the Heidelberg Catechism. It is short, easy to read chapters that are solid on theology, a great book for anyones library!

My sister-in-law gave me "Adopted for Life" as they were going through the adoption process. I still haven't picked it up though to read. Hopefully this will motivate me!
