A hallmark of the adult initiation rites is their ability to be adapted to the needs of individual worshiping assemblies. The word “adapt” (or derivations like “adapting”) appears 53 times in the new translation. So how will you know what can be adapted? And even if an adaptation is allowed, is it a good idea for your parish? Maybe more importantly, what elements of the rites cannot be changed?
In this training, we look at four important questions:
Why is the adaptation of the adult initiation rites important?
What does authentic adaptation of the rites look like?
How do we adapt the rites for our parish (and who decides)?
What would happen if we made wider use of the freedoms allowed in the rites?
The knowledge you will take away from this webinar will give you the confidence to effectively accommodate the rites to the culture of your worshiping community. And you will increase the engagement of your seekers in the ritual process.
