Fostering faith all week long

Christian educators need to lead people beyond “random acts of kindness” into shared patterns of life informed by the deep insights of our tradition, and beyond privatized spirituality into thoughtful participation in God’s activity in the world, say Dorothy C. Bass and Craig Dykstra in the last chapter of Churches: The Local Church and the Structures of Change. Bass and Dykstra explore how developing faith practices in faith communities patterns new ways of living "...that is truly alive to God, neighbor, and self.” Excellent for a church discussion, the chapter is available as a free download from Resources for American Christianity, a website that helps Christian leaders and others better understand the impact, trends and trajectories of Christianity in American society.
