Religious Formation Conference
Discipleship is a vocation to which one can never respond in a final and definitive way. It is a call to ongoing conversion, to an ever deeper appropriation of the mystery of Christ. To be a disciple is to incarnate the identity and mission of Jesus in our own personal, historical, and cultural context. For us, then, conversion to discipleship means formation in and for the American Church of the late 20th century.
