This six-week series is designed to help participants become more conscious and thoughtful while listening to preaching, helping them become more intentional disciples.   Each week, participants will listen together to a recorded homily and reflect on how it moved them to an encounter with Christ.  CFD: Evangelization  ($10 donation per session requested.)

 Goals of this course:

  • To learn more about the dynamics of creating homilies.
  • To listen to homilies with themes of Christmas, Ordinary Time and Lent
  • To develop the craft of effective listening to homilies.
  • To examine interpretations of Scripture passages.
  • To become familiar with the five thresholds of discipleship (trust, curiosity, openness, seeking, intentional discipleship) as described in the book, Forming  Intentional Disciple: The Path to Knowing and Following Jesus, written by Sherry Weddell.
  • To give preachers feedback on how their homily is helping participants on their journey to discipleship.
