B-01 Engaging Families in Nurturing Faith Development
Even as we grow in appreciation for the mystery of faith and can never fully understand the movement of the Spirit in a human heart, to serve families effectively, we need to ask, “What is an optimal environment in which faith can develop?” This session will review some current thinking on what we believe impacts faith development.
