'The Journey' to God
Initiating people into God's loving ways is the most precious gift with which we have been entrusted. When adults come to faith everyone can see how important becoming a Christian is. Like anything worthwhile, (getting married, for example) it happens slowly and in stages. First, a person finds something that they like about us, and begins to make enquiry. (Like a first date, getting to know someone). Then when they have decided that Christian life might be for them, a period of formation follows and, during Lent, comes a period of more intense formation. The main part of the training follows the Christian 'Six Fold Path' of (a) prayer, (b) Worship, (c) Bible reading, (d) Care for one another (e) Resisting evil and (f) Looking at the whole of life as a call from God. This process follows the pattern of 'Do first, then think about it'. After a person has been baptized they reflect on what has happened for another 50 days (from Easter until Pentecost). Then they are full members of the Church and exercise their gifts for the benefit of everyone.
