Better than “religious education” the idea of “Christian formation” gets to what I hope to accomplish personally and in any new church. I think that, as a practice, it has a better idea of the Church as a spiritual unity (and not just a corelative to a school) and puts life-long development back into a continuum. Rather, again, than comparing it to something that one graduates from. Or equally bad: what someone audits for personal curiosity.
So that’s what I’m reading now: online reasources, particularly from the Episcopal and Evangelical Covenant churches.
Will let y’all know what I find.
