I'm enjoying the Network Forums tremendously. So many great ideas. This beats a conference! Through the Network I can find out specific answers to my questions at the time I am seeking the answers instead of banking a ton of ideas that I can't implement. And the answers come from the experts - Children's Pastors just like me who are asking the same questions, and are great at giving good solid answers.
