flashback friday (nov. 29): this week's links from the youth ministry blogosphere
One of the things we are committed to at ym360 is Networking. Our vision for networking is connecting you to people and organizations doing awesome youth ministry.
Flashback Friday is a feature where we give you the run down of some of the awesome posts from the past week across youth ministry blogs. Consider it our way of keeping you connected with what is going on.
(NOTE: This is the last Flashback Friday of 2012!! For the rest of December the ym360 Blog is being given over to nothing but Christmas content. Look for the next Flashback Friday the first Friday in January.)

Fav Read Of The Week:
