This fall, the Church in the 21st Century Center (C21) at Boston College is releasing two new resources to facilitate faith conversation. At a time when speaking about one’s personal relationship with God can be challenging, the C21 Center seeks to provide accessible and effortless tools for both children and adults to make those conversations easier and more frequent. These resources can be utilized in parishes, schools, homes, or wherever “two or three are gathered.”
The FAITH FEEDS program is designed for individuals in Catholic parishes who are hungry for opportunities to talk about their faith with others who share it. Participants gather over coffee or a potluck lunch or dinner, and a host parishioner facilitates conversation using selected articles from the C21 Centers's bi-annual magazine, C21 Resources.
What does God look like? What does God feel like? Who is God? These are big questions for all of us, read what kids across the country and around the world had to say about how they imagine God. Their words, drawings and imagination were a powerful reminder of how we all see God differently.

Pope Francis made history by convening the first-ever Synod on Young People, the Faith, and Vocational Discernment. The gathering was organized so that the Church could listen to young adults from around the world and develop a response to their needs, hopes, and desires. Jonathan Lewis, Assistant Secretary for Pastoral Ministry in the Archdiocese of Washington, was one of about thirty young adult auditors to participate.
