Passing It On

Parents have the most direct impact on their children's spiritual formation. But often they lack confidence in their biblical knowledge, theological understanding, and grasp of Christian tradition.  With gentle humor and faithful insight Kara Oliver encourages parents by providing practical ideas for passing on their faith to their children. She suggests that parents incorporate weekly gatherings into their family schedules for short periods 4 weeks at a time during 4 times of year: Advent, Lent, summer, and back-to-school.

Praise for Passing it On

In a time when families are often pulled in different directions and during an age when the family dinner table seems to fade into the background gathering dust, Passing It On gives voice to God’s call for us to live in community with one another—gathering together to hear and reflect on the stories of the Christian faith. This book provides a tool for families as they seek ways to pass on the faith from generation to generation. With intentional and faithful discipline, Oliver provides a means for bringing the family back together. Gathered together, families are invited to live into the seasons of the Christian year, pay attention to God’s presence in their lives, and discuss and share their experiences with the Holy.
