Curating Resources

Julie Aageson



 As curators of resources, John Roberto says resource ministry and resource centers are more needed and more important than ever before.

With resources and resource information exploding exponentially, resource centers have a critical role to play as curators (custodians) of an overwhelming amount of resource information.
Roberto is editor of Lifelong Faith, a journal about the theory and practice of faith formation (www.lifelongfaith.com) and an articulate voice for lifelong learning. His presentations at the Book of Faith Jubilee, April 29-May 1 (www.luthersem.edu/jubilee) stimulated a lot of conversation about resource ministry. His work on the Future of Faith Formation and the Bible included an introduction to what he calls Faith Formation 2020: Vision and Strategy (www.lifelongfaith.com/presentations).

Resource ministry from the beginning has been about shared resources, best practices, and making informed choices. The collaborative work of curating resources, serving as custodians and stewards, is right on the mark!
