Catechesis is for Everyone!

As we continue our journey in God’s work to plant a church in Bell County, it’s important that we take a moment to consider how our foundations are constructed. A house built upon sand cannot stand, but a house built upon the rock of God’s Word will remain (Matthew 7:24-27). The ancient practice of catechesis is sometimes confusing for those new to the Anglican tradition—and honestly, for some who have been in the tradition a while. While it began as a practice for new initiates, it’s not just for them, but for everyone in the church. There is an upcoming Catechesis Colloquium being held at Christ Church Waco in March, featuring noted speaker Hans Boersma. I encourage everyone to attend! More information can be found here:
