Hans Boersma in Waco, TX
Dr. Hans Boersma will be speaking atThe Institute for the Renewal of Christian Catechesis 2019 Colloquium in Waco, TX.
What is the purpose of catechesis?What is its place in the (post)modern world? How does catechesis relate to ongoing, lifelong discipleship? What is the ultimate goal of catechetical theology? To approach these questions, theologian Hans Boersma will discuss how a robust sacramental approach to theology can strengthen and enliven the ministry of catechesis in the church today. "Mystagogy" is an ancient term meaning "leading into the mysteries." In this conference, we will explore how the notion of catechesis as mystagogy—as being led into life with God—can enable the flourishing of lifelong discipleship. More than just learning the catechism, more than just a "check list" of ideas to memorize, catechesis is about preparing for and entering deeper into life in Christ.
