A community approach to Christian education
The reading for this week's Christian Education class is on different approaches to Christian Education.
Being that I will be involved with the creation of a new community this year, I read the chapter on a community approach.
Don't have too much to say, other than that the key elements of community education of
service, reflection and communion
evoked the following parallels for me:
all of life, identity, ritual (all leading to wholeness)
outward focus, inner life nurture, embracing the transcendent/ immanent / sacred
collective story (of wider community), my story / our (smaller community) story, God's story - which all equal the Sacred Story
