What led us to buy into the myth that most formation happens early? Who sold us the story that formation isn’t life-long? And how would our ministries and our energies be redirected if we really adopted the life-long viewpoint?
I'm wondering if anyone else has concerns about the phrase "faith formation." Some of us discussed this at a recent classis meeting. Many thought it was vague and would have preferred a confessional or biblical phrase.
I’m interested in hearing how this strikes you. How will it help you in ministry in your congregation? What concerns do you have?
