Expanding the Boundaries of Adult Religious Education
Isaac, E. Paulette
New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education, n133 p83-87 Spr 2012
Religious institutions wear many hats. In addition to meeting spiritual needs, they also serve as educational, cultural, political, and social centers. Like the world in general, many of them have responded to societal changes. They have expanded their contextual, geographical, and physical boundaries. Also, as demonstrated throughout this sourcebook, they continue to cover a wide spectrum of topics and instructional techniques to meet the educational needs of adults. Religious educators can enhance learning opportunities for adults by collaborating with other organizations. With the number of older adults in the population increasing, religious educators should consider specific programs that meet their needs. This chapter provides a synopsis of the previous chapters and presents challenges and opportunities for adult educators.
