  •  Build.Plant.Grow

    Friday, Dec. 5, 2014

    Build.Plant.Grow. is a faith formation program for people of any age who build, plant, and grow the word in their lives. It is especially for use in schools and parishes as children break open the word each week.

    In our weekly lesson plans we follow threads that pass through the Sunday readings, suggesting how we might live our daily lives as Christians at our best. After discussing the First Reading and the Gospel in the Catholic lectionary, we move to an engaging children's story that follows a complementary line of thought.

    Activities, a case study and a closing prayer complete the lesson. Friends are welcome to adapt the lessons for their use across settings and faith traditions.

  •  Brand new theme!

    Tuesday, Jun. 26, 2012

    We are excited to introduce our sixth theme for the CBL Leadership program!

    Leadership Requires Engagement - engaging life fully for the common good.

    Leaders develop and dedicate their talents to promote the common good. This is where they choose to spend their time and effort. Leadership requires positive civic engagement. It is making sure that the communities I am part of are better because I am in them. And that I am better because of the communities I choose to be part of.
