Each Monday I will post a link to the New City Catechism question of the week. This is a great resource that can be used in several ways: 1) Parents can use this to help disciple their children. By talking about this one question/answer each week you will be laying a solid theological foundation for your kids spiritual lives. 2) You can also use this on your own to help strengthen the foundation that has already begun in your life. It is worth your while to check it out. (Under the settings icon – it looks like a wheel (see pic below)- you will find both an adult mode and a child mode. So you can customize the way that the catechism is presented.)
You can read a short introduction about “why catechisms” by clicking HERE – it will give you some thoughts about why this is such a helpful tool for you and/or your family.
Since I did not start this the first week of the year I am using this post to play a little catch up. I have included the links for the first 3 questions of the catechism. Feel free to look at all 3 or just start with #3 this week and keep going.
Question 1: What is our only hope in life and death?
Question 3: How many persons are there in God?
Take some time to familiarize yourself with the site. It is not at all complicated and will give you several ways to help teach the doctrinal truth each week: Q and A, a short video (V), a short commentary(C), and a prayer(P).
It’s good stuff. Holler if you have any questions about how it can help you and your family.
