integrated throughout all aspects of congregational and daily life.

This definition highlights the initiative and action that we must take in our own FAITH FORMATION.
In essence, we become clay - so that we are formed and transformed by the Holy Spirit and by one another.
But throughout all of our doing and being, we are reminded that God’s
“hands” are continually present in our efforts to gain both
“head” knowledge found in education and learning;
and “heart” wisdom discovered through
prayer, ritual and practice.
”Yet, O Lord, you are our God; we are the clay, and you are our potter;
we are all the work of your hand.” - Isaiah 64:8
