As 2017 comes to a close CEF would like to thank all those who contributed to Forming Faith: The Blog of Christians Engaged in Faith Formation this past year. Your articles encouraged us to explore new ministry ideas, kept us up to date on the newest books, and inspired us to be a curious.church. In case you missed them, we’ve highlighted a few posts below.

The Forming Faith blog amplifies the voices of  faith formation leaders from around the country. We invite clergy, staff, lay persons and volunteers involved in faith formation to contribute an article (or two!) for 2018. Please contact C. Hides if you would like to be a part of the Forming Faith blog. Guidelines are posted here.
