Every Thursday afternoon at Between the Times we highlight the writing of Southeastern alum, J.D. Greear, Pastor of The Summit Church in Raleigh-Durahm, North Carolina. This week J.D. and his wife Veronica talk with Southeastern PhD student Trevin Wax about parenting and their new Bible study book, Ready to Launch.
Here’s an excerpt from their conversation:

Children are arrows, and arrows are designed to be launched out.
