“How do we grow as Christians ourselves and help younger people – especially in our own families and churches – to grow as Christians too?”
Editors’ Note: Here at Building Faith, we are strong proponents of faith at home – see our Home Practices series, for example. So we were very excited to hear of a new website all about faith at home. What’s more, it is being launched by a friend of ours, Nurya Love Parish, an Episcopal priest from Michigan. Read the announcement below.
Faith at Home
How do you practice your faith at home? Is worship of God a Sunday-only event, or can you make it more? GrowChristians.org is a new website that invites Christians to learn from one another. The site will help readers deepen their life of faith, and show how to help children grow as Christians too. Writers will offer their stories of practicing faith at home, covering topics like family prayer, reading the Bible, how to talk about the cross, using music, art, cooking, and more.
Good news: Building Faith editors Matthew Kozlowski and Charlotte Hand Greeson will be contributing articles.
What is the Site and When will it Launch?
GrowChristians.org will launch the week of Ash Wednesday, February 2016.
The Grow Christians website is a place to ponder the practical details of a life that glorifies God. Led by editor Nurya Love Parish, the site asks one central question: “How do we grow as Christians ourselves and help younger people – especially in our own families and churches – to grow as Christians too?”
I’m so excited to read the writers that will be featured on the site over the next couple of months. For example, I want to learn from the reflections of a young adult starting an intentional community; and a young father reflecting on praying with small children. I want to see what happens when a young adult and his mom reflect on what made faith stick in their family life. I want some recipes that help me celebrate the saints, and I want some ideas for creating a space for prayer.
Most of all, I want the world to see and know that the Christian faith is a way of love and of life. That following Jesus leads to life abundant – not only in the hereafter, but in the daily round.
-Nurya Love Parish, editor
