Members of the ACNA’s Committee for Catechesis will survey three focal tasks of catechesis and how we as a church can respond: helping outsiders become insiders (Anglican Front Porch), helping beloved children become belief-ful adults (Anglican Family), and helping forgetters become rememberers. We’ll start with a look at what we’re up against—the shape of cultural catechesis today. We’ll end with an update on the work of editing and revising To Be a Christian. In between we’ll share stories of how faith is being formed around the Church.
