Introducing Ritual to the Hesitant and Suspicious
Slow Walking Series
Pastor Dan Eggold (to the left of the Pascal Candle in the photo) from Grace Lutheran Church, Lafayette, Indiana discusses some “stealth practices” he has used to introduce ritual at Grace. This video is under five minutes long and worth your time. He begins introducing ritual with the youth confirmation and has now included ritual practices via “baby steps” into their adult faith formation process as well.
