Paula Gooder is one of the authors of the wonderful Pilgrim: a course for the Christian journey. Our diocese is just about to launch into a focus on these materials for small groups and faith formation. Exciting! Paula was recently the guest of St Francis Theological College where she gave the Felix Arnott lecture and a few workshops. She was brilliant! Articulate and witty, her thinking is top rate, but she also has the gift of being able to explain her thoughts in ways that don't distance.
Her website contains audio of many of her presentations and the handouts are there as well. Well worth a look.
We'll be holding a launch for the Pilgrim materials in this diocese on the 25th of October. Bishop Cameron will be doing the launching and there'll be an orientation session as well. That'll be a kind of training for people in how to use the materials effectively. I mention that because Paula will be with us in a fashion on the day; I interviewed (and videoed) her when she was with us recently so she'll be giving insights along the way. A crowd has already booked in for the launch but there's still some spaces. Book now!
