The decline of Sunday School possibly creates the opportunity to go “back to the future” and create a significantly more holistic model of faith formation than the present age-segregated “drop off” model. What happens when you combine the wisdom of the elder and the wonder of the child in a creative caring conversation around issues of faith and life every week in church and most every night in most every home? Deuteronomy 6 (when you lie down and when you rise) combines with Acts 2 (they met in homes and in temple) in a new experiment of Cross+Generational Faith Formation with Rev. Dr. Rich Melheim.
About the instructor: Dr. Rich Melheim is an ordained Lutheran pastor with a BA in Journalism, an M.Div. in Theology, and a DMIN in Semiotics and the Future. Rich has invested his ministry in creating education systems that pull parents into the core of children, youth and family systems “every night in every home.” He is the founder and initiating force behind Faith Inkubators, FAITH5, and The Cross+Gen Movement. He is the author of two dozen books including “Let’s Kill Sunday School Volumes 1 and 2,” and “Holding Your Family Together.”
