At the beginning of July, St Francis College hosted an awesome event as a way of focusing us all on NAIDOC week for 2018. Following the theme of "Because of her, we can", a group of brilliant women talked about those who have truly inspired them to work towards reconciliation and peace for all.
There's no doubt Jesus encouraged people reconciled with each other and with God. In practice approaching reconciliation with our fellow humans is not always easy. Where do we start? What can we practically do? One way is to hear the stories of people, their feelings, emotions and thoughts.
The Building Faith website has been making some great resources for faith formation lately and here's another one. This free webinar is a middle-of-the-night thing for us here but normally registering for webinars means you can access the material at your own leisure after it's done. Here's the details from them...
Considering becoming a leader of the two new 360 Project modules, BIBLE360 Introduction to the Prophets and FAITH360: Praying in Anglican Ways? That role is available to clergy in the Anglican Church Southern Queensland diocese and suitable lay people appointed by them.
Want to resource your parishioners with the latest events, news, ideas and strategies to enable us all to be better stewards of creation? Or just want some of those ideas yourself, for projects at your church?
The big difference with the two new 360 Project modules is this: your own local expert, whether that be your parish priest or one from a neighbouring parish can lead them. Or even a lay person with some theological training behind them.
The modules have presenter's notes that assist in this process. But you still wouldn't want to just pick one up and lead it. There's more to it than that.
