Cultivating Adult Faith in Practice
Carol Krau, director of adult formation and discipleship at the General Board of Discipleship, has started a weekly e-mail and Twitter tip for adult class and small group leaders. Krau will share a short fact about adult learning, adult spirituality or other areas related to helping adults grow in their faith. The short fact will be followed by one idea for using the information in a class or group.
Follow Carol's updates at @adultformation on Twitter. Accounts are free! Sign up at www.twitter.com, or e-mail Krau at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up by e-mail.
