About Elders' shopnotes

This small volume in your hands is the fifth in a series of essay collections based on the ministry of Elders’ ShopNotes (ESN). This ministry began as an effort to help busy elders be- come better equipped in shepherding the people of god under their care. ESN is a bi-monthly ministry letter written in both English and Spanish and distributed upon request to elders in North and South America, as well as some places in Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and other locations. Each issue is designed to strengthen and equip elders so they can more effectively do the work of shepherding god’s people.
