Fr. Gabriel wraps up the series on catechesis for a new century with six ways to focus on a new process. These include an emphasis on ritual (especially with regard to the process, beginning with enrollment), an emphasis on imagery, as in the mystagogy of old, to enable people to enter the faith with the heart, the little things that make up the ground of our faith (blessings, veneration of icons, etc.), clarity of expectations, focus on the variable aspects of each person's life as they enter Orthodoxy (get their story like an old-time doctor would interview people), and finally, arrangement of a flexible schedule for study and entry.
