Faith is a gift of the Holy Spirit. Theologian John Westerhoff reminds us that faith is verb more than a noun. Faith is more than something one possesses. Faith is something we do. So how do we do faith in times of crisis? How do we help our people grow in faith during a pandemic? As we look to ReShaping Church, we must reshape faith formation in our congregations. Together we will explore some of the most significant trends in faith formation and how we enact and live out these trends in these emerging post-pandemic days.
