Back in October, our Matthew Kozlowski represented the CMT at LifelongFaith Associates’s symposium on intergenerational faith formation. One of the goals of the conference was to capture as much wisdom as possible from the leaders at the event, which led to the creation of the Intergenerational Faith Formation website.

You know we’re big fans of audio here in the CMT, and we think the new collection of interviews up on the site will be a source of inspiration and ideas for anyone who takes the chance to listen.

Here’s an excerpt from the interview with Matthew:

It’s the community of faith that really forms people as disciples for Jesus Christ. We’re able to point people in the direction of intergenerational formation based on what they might already be doing well. We do recommend generationally specific curriculum … But we see churches that are using those and yet weaving intergenerational experiences into them.

(You can listen to the whole interview here.)

Other interview subjects include Debbie and Burt Streicher from Milestones Ministry, Liz Perraud of GenOn Ministries, Maureen Poulin of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Buffalo’s Department of Lifelong Faith Formation, and a number of leaders from the Connecticut Association of United Church Educators.

Have a listen, check out the rest of the site, and tell us what you think!
