AT-HOME FAITH FORMATION TIP: “Marking faith milestones makes us sensitive to the work of the Holy Spirit in our midst and helps us identify and share our stories of faith. As we celebrate milestones, we become a community of seekers as well as believers, always on the lookout for God’s hand at work, always expecting to join in God’s mission.” —from Celebrating the Milestones of Faith, available from www.FaithAliveResources.org. How might you mark faith milestones in your family or household this year? (Tip from Faith Formation Ministries; www.crcna.org/FaithFormation)
