“Christians are made, not born”  -Tertullian, d. 240

Formation in Faith is a ten month initiative to grow in Christ by knowing, committing to, and participating in the Story of God. In our households, we commit to reading and reflecting together on one Bible passage each week read within the context of household prayer, engage in different practices of Christian life together as the ten months progress, and explore the promises made at Baptism.

The materials below include a lectionary, simply liturgy for household use, discussion questions, and an introduction to the narrative liturgy. Please set aside time each week to read the Bible assigned passage and discuss it as a household. During Lent, we will explore Baptismal promises as the means of committing to the Story of God. On April 15, participating households will be presented to the Bishop for a special blessing.

We look forward to this journey together. And please do not hesitate to ask us questions as we go along!

-Fr. Richard
