About-

This study resource focuses upon Christian "practices": those behaviors by which congregations shape, teach, train, equip -- cultivate -- their identity, vision, and mission as Christian communities. Thus baptism, Eucharist, forgiveness, ministry, discernment, and worship are practices through which a people are formed in a distinctive way of life. Questions for reflection and discussion are included to stimulate use within groups for study, learning, and formation.
