What if for every message you offered a few resources (articles, books, Bible passages) for students to read after-the-fact?

What if for every message you offered – the week before, maybe, or in a preview email – a few resources to ready themselves for what’s being taught?

The biggest argument against this? Few students might take you up on it.

But my counterargument? You always want to be resourcing the kinds of students who would.

Plus, it wouldn’t (or shouldn’t) take too much time. You’re already preparing for the talk (or someone is), so the peripheral prep becomes a students’ own deeper dive. Or you can always sic a sharp student (or team) on this if needed.

(Here’s a related Fridea – about pointing students to books.)
