+Rev. Erik Karlson, Facebook Group Facilitator-
Good afternoon, my friends. I would like to introduce to you the new book we will begin studying as a group on Monday, May 14th. We will be reading Bishop Jon Anderson’s recommended Shepherd of Souls: Faith Formation Through Trusted Relationships by David. W. Anderson. The author offers five principles of faith formation, explores four key faith practices, and three characteristics that Christians may consider following in their everyday lives. Anderson maintains that personal and trusted relationships are vital when serving as Christ’s disciples in the world, and he will explain why.
If you would like a free copy of this book, please call the synod office at 507-637-3904. The synod has free copies available to SW MN Synod rostered leaders and Christian educators. If you have already purchased the book, you can get the cost reimbursed by emailing your receipt to Carla Klawitter at Carla.firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may have also noticed that there is an evaluation up on the Facebook group site for the last books we have studied. Hopefully we can glean some ‘good’ data from that and see how and where we are with the current way we go about our book studies. Click here to complete the evaluation.
