January 2018 issue of GEMS

Often adults express their feeling that they don’t know enough about their faith.   They are hesitant to talk about their faith; they shy away from participating in adult faith formation because they fear not knowing as much as the others; they are insecure in their ability to share faith and pass on faith to others.

 

 How might we:

·       respect the experiences – the God experiences – already in their lives?

·       respectfully provide opportunities for them to reflect on how much they already “know,” how much they have already experienced?

·       empower them to share their faith experiences with others?

·       nudge them to continuing growth?

  

All the past issues of GEMS are archived at www.janetschaeffler.com

 

You might want to go back to GEMS #36 for an idea for the new year – for yourself and/or the people to whom you minister.
