Connections is a visit to the worlds God is creating and redeeming today: homes, workplaces, neighborhoods, and places of recreation and volunteer activity. The goals of this experiential learning resource are to help participants meet God in their everyday lives:

  • See their worlds as God's creation.
  • Recognize Christ's redemption in their lives.
  • Discover that they are already in ministry.
  • Be nurtured in their skills and gifts for ministry.
  • Live out the call of their Baptism in their daily lives.
  • Share their faith and life connections so that they can support one another.
  • Be accountable in their callings to God and to one another.

The creating, redeeming and life-giving God continues graciously to reach out to us. Learning together is making a connection between Martin Luther's catechetical "What does this mean?" of God's Word and the "What in the world does this mean?" of our own lives. That intersection is the place for dynamic learning.
