The Faith Formation Study Committee has been working steadily for the past four years. Each year at Synod we've received a report and the work of the team has expanded in response to the request of local churches. What could have been a contentious issue (adapting the practice of profession of faith and allowing “age and ability appropriate faith in Jesus Christ” to be the marker of admittance to The Lord’s Supper) has been utilized as an opportunity for church congregations, ministry leaders and councils to reflect again on the gracious nature of faith.
- How has your church enacted the work of the Faith Formation Study Committee? How are your local congregations markedly different as a result of this Study Committee’s work?
- If you agree with me that this was Study Committee work well done, what can we do to ensure that there is more of the same with other contentious issues on the horizon?
