7 Things to Say to a Hurting Loved One
When a suffering friend opens up to us, sometimes we don’t know what to say. This article offers some places to begin.

A “Good Faith” Debate: Should Christian Parents Send Their Children to Public Schools?
The Gospel Coalition arranged a conversation between Jen Wilkin and Jonathan Pennington about the topic of public schooling. You can watch a video at the link here, and there is also a transcript available for reading. This issue can often be heated and contentious, but this conversation was insightful and full of respect.
Special thanks to Maggie A who sent along this link and the links in the following block. Maggie mentions that these resources on the topic of schooling might be especially helpful at this time of year when many families are thinking through schooling choices for the fall.
