Forming Young Hearts in Anglican Families


  • Christopher Klukas – Chairman of the Anglican Family Working Group of the ACNA Committee on Catechesis
  • Leslie F. Thyberg – Professor at Trinity School for Ministry and Nashotah House

George Herbert, an Anglican poet and priest, once wrote:

“Seven whole days, not one in seven, I will praise thee…”

The faith formation that happens on Sundays in our own lives and in the lives of our children is vital, but unless that formation is continued throughout the rest of the week, its penetration into our hearts will be shallow at best. In this workshop we will discuss the essential elements of discipleship and spirituality in Anglican families and how these practices can be used to form the hearts of our children. We will also look at ways to promote family spirituality in our congregations.
