Five years ago, I read a fascinating book by Diana Butler Bass–Christianity After Religion. In it she writes about the spiritual renewal that she sees going on around the globe. To live into the Spirit’s movement, she suggests four actions: prepare, practice, play and participate. I see those four actions as a good strategy for talking about and organizing adult education or Christian education, or, to put it another way, discipleship—that is learning to be a follower of Jesus Christ.
In later posts I’ll describe what each of those four actions might mean for our community of faith.
