Our Hearts Were Burning Within Us: A Pastoral Plan for Adult Faith Formation in the United States has been around as a guiding document for lifelong, on-going faith formation since 1999. And yet, adult faith formation does still seem to usually take a back-seat to children’s faith formation. Just think of a parish you’re familiar with…what percentage of kids participate in formation? What percentage of adults?
Our Hearts Were Burning Within Us isn’t anything radical. It names the ways and means faith formation for adults can and should occur in a typical parish. This Prezi diagram provides a quick walk-through of the document: http://prezi.com/6ed5odatigxv/our-hearts-were-burning-within-us-a-pastoral-plan-for-adult-faith-formation-in-the-united-states-usccb/
What do you think most prevents widespread, quality implementation of these ideas? Is there anything this document really misses the mark on?
