Item description for Rooted in Christ: 12 Faith Formation Sessions for Adults by Jeanne Wiest...
Overview When it comes to growing in faith, it's all about Christ. St. Paul puts it this way: "Continue to live in Christ Jesus, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving" (Colossians 2:7). In Rooted in Christ: 12 Faith Formation Sessions for Adults, Jeanne Wiest too equates growing in faith with being rooted in Christ. Each of the twelve sessions in this book is grounded in the firm belief that all Catholic adults are called to discipleship; to follow Christ in all of life's big and little challenges. Topics covered include: I Believe in God; Jesus of History, Christ of Faith; Origins of the Gospels; The Church as Servant; The Seven Sacraments; and Christian Morality Basics. Each two-hour session includes detailed guidelines for the facilitator, a "Leader's Presentation Guide," a prayer service, and multiple handouts for participants. This is an invaluable resource for lifelong learning and recommended in particular for catechist formation, RCIA teams and catechumens, intergenerational assemblies, and all adult faith formation gatherings.
