Questions to ponder

Participants will consider a variety of questions:

  • What are the different yet complementary dimensions of faith?
  • What is the difference between education and formation?
  • What are the purposes of faith formation in a dynamic model of congregational life?
  • Why is it helpful to distinguish between initial and ongoing formation?
  • How do adults learn?
  • How do various media (e.g., digital, liturgical, musical, print) form faith?
  • What formation practices are essential?
  • How does one plan or refine a program of adult formation?

Participants will be asked to do some preparatory work on one aspect of Christian education/faith formation in their congregation to share and refine in small group work.

Preparing the Preparatory Work. Come Back Soon.
