I really didn't set out to become the Energizer bunny of bloggers... honest! I had planned to scale back my writing after 7 Posts in 7 Days was over, but I keep having things to say. Thanks for continuing to read! I do intend to slow down soon.
Last night at our Pastoral Council meeting our Director of Faith Formation brought up the importance of faith sharing in adult faith formation. I can't say I had given much thought to it before then, but it struck me that much of what we do in our blogs and in commenting on one another's posts is exactly that. We're sharing how we live out our faith in our day to day lives. It also got me started thinking about what makes faith sharing comfortable or uncomfortable. It certainly seems easier when there is some level of similarity in backgrounds. It also seems easier once you have some level of familiarity with the people you are sharing with. A certain amount of faith sharing happens naturally at the bible study I am part of, even though that's not the focus of the group.
Personally, I think I do more faith sharing online, with others going through similar experiences, than I do with members of my parish. How do you share your faith? What makes it more comfortable for you to do so?
