Feasting on the Word curriculum celebrates new Canadian distribution
June 20, 2012
Augsburg Fortress Canada is delighted to become the official distributor in Canada for Feasting on the Word Curriculum: Teaching the Revised Common Lectionary.
Feasting on the Word Curriculum is an ecumenical, downloadable resource that incorporates the uniqueness of the Feasting on the Word commentaries, which provide four different approaches to teaching biblical passages in the Revised Common Lectionary. Adaptable to a variety of learning settings and teaching styles, this innovative curriculum integrates the commentary style to explore lectionary passages in ways suitable for all participants.
Published by Westminster John Knox Press in collaboration with Congregational Ministries Publishing, Feasting on the Word Curriculum is designed for classroom use in the church among various age levels, including children, youth, and adult. Everyone explores the same passage each week, making it easy for families to learn and live out their faith together.
Commencing June 2012, Augsburg Fortress Canada will represent Feasting on the Word Curriculum to the Canadian market. Given the online nature of the resources, constituents will continue to purchase materials by visiting feastingcurriculum.com or by calling (800) 523-1631. All printed material—including color packs, CDs, and the newly added print-and-ship version—will be shipped from the Augsburg Fortress Kitchener location. Andy Seal, director of Augsburg Fortress Canada, stated, “I am pleased to be able to expand our relationship with WJK by adding this curriculum to the lineup of resources we already distribute to the Canadian market on behalf of WJK. I am confident that Feasting on the Word Curriculum will be a valued, transformational resource to lectionary churches across Canada.”
“We are thrilled to make this announcement to the Canadian audience,” said Marc Lewis, president and publisher of Westminster John Knox Press. “Augsburg Fortress Canada is committed to providing a positive customer experience, and we are confident churches in Canada will be well cared for.”
Feasting on the Word Curriculum is available as a Total Church Plan or as Individual Age Levels, in both 9- and 12-month formats. For more information or to view age-level samples, go to feastingcurriculum.com or call (800) 523-1631.
