For the last 500 years, many churches have been teaching their members how to understand their faith and grow in relationship with God using questions and answers. Some have used what is called the Catechism, to do this.
Catechism means 'to instruct; to hear. Much of the catechism was taught as a question and response, like the Heidelberg Catechism. Here is an example:
Q.What is your only comfort
in life and death?
That I am not my own,
but belong with body and soul,
both in life and in death,
to my faithful Saviour Jesus Christ.
He has fully paid for all my sins
with his precious blood,
and has set me free
from all the power of the devil.
He also preserves me in such a way
that without the will of my heavenly Father
not a hair can fall from my head;
indeed, all things must work together
for my salvation.
Therefore, by his Holy Spirit
he also assures me
of eternal life
and makes me heartily willing and ready
from now on to live for him.
Dig Deeper is all about questions and answers.
We want to know about your questions about what you are hearing in our sermons and worship services, about life and the Bible.
Join us Sunday morning at 10am for worship, then stay for coffee and discussion. If you have missed a Sunday, you can listen to our sermons online, and contact us with questions. We will try to deal with them at the next Dig Deeper!
Join us as we explore questions we have and answers we discover together. Pastor Josh will facilitate and lead the discussion, but whatever your worldview, you are welcome at Dig Deeper. Sundays at Evergreen, after the morning service.
