SORRENTO CENTRE Sunday, July 13 - Saturday, July 19, 2014 Bringing it Home: Faith Formation in the Household with Peter John (PJ) Hobbs How often do we pray at home? When did we last read the scripture together as a household? Do you ever turn all the gadgets off at home and keep silence as a spiritual practice? At the dinner table, does anyone ask, “Did something happen today that made you think of God?” This will be an interactive course as participants engage in discussion, spiritual practice, and the creation of resources for use in the households of the church. Within our Canadian mosaic, being Christian is increasingly a non-conformist choice. While there are many welcome aspects to our pluralistic milieu, disciples of Jesus need to be more intentional in their faith formation. As we strive to renew the ministry of the church for a new era, the Christian household receives little attention as an essential element of our faith community. PETER JOHN (PJ) HOBBS After 21 years in parish ministry, PJ is now the Director of Mission for the Anglican Diocese of Ottawa. He enjoys developing resources for spiritual practice in households, and his doctoral thesis was a study of teenagers doing Lectio Divina at home with their parents. Given this context, this course will examine the place of the household within the life of the church. Acknowledging the many shapes of households (e.g. singles, couples, parents, children, teens), participants will explore ways in which a household can be intentional in faith formation. A retreat leader and facilitator, PJ is also adjunct faculty at Saint Paul University (Ottawa) and the Virginia Theological Seminary. He and Diane are together raising and/or launching three daughters – Hannah, Mary Grace, and Rachel.
