Presenter: Kit Carlson, All Saints Episcopal Church-East Lansing, MI
Kit Carlson is rector of All Saints Episcopal Church in East Lansing and author of "Speaking Our Faith: Equipping the Next Generations to Share the Old, Old Story" (Church Publishing 2018). The Speaking Our Faith program has helped hundreds of "God's shy people" become more comfortable talking about their faith.
It's hard for Episcopalians to share their faith, because generally we have not been taught how to speak about our own faith...even to people within our own churches. Sacred conversations can help build the capacity to speak about faith honestly and can start to help people feel more comfortable talking about their faith with people outside their "church circles." This quick plunge into sacred conversations will whet participants' appetites for speaking about faith and encourage them to take a deeper plunge when they get home to their own faith communities.
