Deepening our life in Christ is an ongoing journey that continues through all of our lives. Adult Christian formation is all about living into the fullness of God. Christian formation is the process of growing in our relationship with God, self, others and all creation. It involves the planting of small seeds, the nurturing and watering of the ground of each of our lives, so that God’s kingdom can be evident in what we become. Christian formation is a process, not a one-time event. It involves the whole of our lives. When we study and learn scripture and our tradition and history, we become better able to see what God is doing in our lives, in our families, and in our world.
St. John’s Cathedral is offering numerous ways for adult Christians to grow and be formed. It is an exciting time to be here, to grow into ever greater relationship with God and all around us.
All learning is happening ONLINE until it is safe to gather in person once more.
