Test, quizzes, papers. I can honestly say I don’t miss these parts of school. But, I do miss the beautiful gift that school afforded – that of learning for the sake of learning. Through many years of education I was able to gradually “connect the dots” of understanding that helped me to know God. The more we know Him the more we can love Him.
Technology is being used in amazing ways to help people know who Jesus is by study of the Scriptures and the many aspects of our Christian Faith. As good as these resources are many people don’t know that they are available. Sacred Heart is one of several parishes offering an amazing tool for the intellectual, spiritual, and relational growth of our people. It’s called FORMED (formed.org).
FORMED covers the major areas of Catholicism. Ever find yourself wishing you had a greater ability to talk with a family member, neighbor, or coworker about your Roman Catholic Faith? Rest easy, you’re in good company. All of us could use more tools in our toolbox. Over Thanksgiving I’m sure there will be many conversations about the Church, politics, and culture. Why not go to the table (literally) better equipped? Formed is perfect for this.
Please check it out. The content is presented in beautiful and relatively brief videos. All you have to do is search out a topic and press play. Much easier than school, right? Best thing of all…NO TESTS! We’d love to hear your feedback once you’ve had a chance to use FORMED. We need resources like this more than ever so that we can be ready to give a defense for our beliefs. See the instructions below to sign on to FORMED.
