This fall, the Church in the 21st Century Center (C21) at Boston College is releasing two new resources to facilitate faith conversation. At a time when speaking about one’s personal relationship with God can be challenging, the C21 Center seeks to provide accessible and effortless tools for both children and adults to make those conversations easier and more frequent. These resources can be utilized in parishes, schools, homes, or wherever “two or three are gathered.”
The final panel in the Easter Series will engage the ideas of prominent business men and women who have extensive experience in leadership, management, and governance. The conversation will center around what can be done to restore trust in the institutional Church among the faithful and how the Church can effectively move forward.
The newly redesigned C21 Resources is now available. The Summer 2019 issue is dedicated to the work of revitalizing the Church and features essays, reflections, interviews, and analyses from noted authors, scholars, and speakers. You can also get a recap of the C21 Center’s four-part Easter Series event, and find practical ways for how you can help the work of revitalization and renewal today. (ISSUU)
