To Be a Christian: New Class Starting

Starting on Sunday, September 24, at 9:10 am (between our two liturgies) St. Barnabas will hold a class to examine the Catechism published by the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA).  A catechism is a summary of basic Christian belief and practice intended for use in teaching those fundamentals to new and developing Christians (hence the name, “To Be a Christian”).  It is written in question and answer form, and it used to be the practice in the Anglican church to have candidates for confirmation memorize the answers to all the questions.  We won’t insist on any feats of memory.  The Catechism is centered on the Apostles’ Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, and the Ten Commandments and forms a great introduction to Anglican church culture, which promotes Biblical literacy in an atmosphere of prayer and structured worship.  New Christians and those seeking to develop their understanding of the Christian faith are welcome.
