What we’re reading…06/05/15

Each Friday, we’ll post “What we’re reading.” Essentially, it is a list of posts that we wish we had written or we feel add to the overall conversation about Tulsa, Life, and Faith. If you have an article that you want us to consider, email our lead contributor, Aaron Tiger (aarontiger@fumctulsa.org).

Tulsa

Our day-old daughter just turned 2: Kyle Porter wrote this heart-wrenching and beautiful post about adoption a couple of weeks back.   “We found out later in the summer that our foster daughter would actually be staying with us a while longer for various reasons. This was the most emotional time for me. I’m not sure why but a sense of joy (that we would keep her) melded with a pain for her parents (that wouldn’t get her back) and produced some of the most gut-wrenching moments of her stint as a foster child with us.” [ more ]

The Only Six Words Parents Need to Say to Their Kids About Sports Or Any Performance: This incredible piece by the Fuller Institute is a must read for parents whose kids do any extracurricular activities. [ more ]

Faith

I Will Call You Loved: Lots has been written about Jenner and the transgender transformation this week. We really appreciated this piece that is written to Christians about how we respond to our culture around us. No matter where you stand on this topic, we encourage you to read it all the way through.  [ more ]
