How do faith communities foster lifelong growth in faith and discipleship? FED Stories is an opportunity for leaders to listen to and learn from one another in an environment of mutual encouragement and shared discovery.
The new Assembly Formation, Education and Discipleship unit invites congregations and presbyteries to host regional FED Stories events – half-day or evening gatherings where local stories are shared about activities, groups or processes that are bearing fruit in forming disciples of Jesus Christ.
We believe that as a church we can learn from each others’ experiences and experiments, from long-held wisdom and from risk-taking adventure.
“FED stories” is an initiative of the UCA Assembly to foster conversation about formation, education and discipleship across the Uniting Church.
Based loosely on the well-known “TED Talks”, FED Stories are intended to be regional gatherings where participants hear stories of congregational practices in relation to formation, education and discipleship.
