Faith, how is faith formed? How did your family demonstrate its faith when you were growing up? What was helpful? What was not helpful? When it comes to math in our culture, we’re comfortable with “right answer” and “wrong answer.” But when it comes to faith formation the standard seems to be “Well…wing it! Think for yourself. There are no wrong answers.” True? Is it appropriate for families of faith to say, “No, not THAT. It’s THIS.” 

Fundamentally this Sunday we’re going to explore how God has formed His faith family for the last 4,000 years. We’ll be in Deuteronomy 6:4-9. It’s called the Shema. Enjoy the video and  below as we prepare to come together.
