Adult faith formation plays a vital role in animating the local church. Yet, it often suffers relative neglect. Guided by Jane E. Regan’s book Forming a Community of Faith, this course helps us recognize opportunities in our faith communities where faith formation can be nurtured without adding elaborate programs. It explores the implications of a post-modern and diverse culture, key themes of evangelization and catechesis, and basic skills such as the art of adult conversation and new perspectives such as communities of practice, so that we can imagine adult faith formation at the heart of community life.
