2005 Lenten studies

A range of small group Lenten studies are available for UCA members to access this year, including a series from the Synod of Queensland, the Presbytery of Tasmania, a series from the NSW Synod’s ELM Centre for Lay Ministry and one from the Catholic Education Office targeting Christians from different traditions meeting together.

ELM Centre studies
Co-authored by Rev Dr Chris Walker and Amelia Koh-Butler, ELM Associate Director, these Lenten Studies are available on http://boe.resources.org.au/ They specifically seek to respond to the visit by Tom Bandy last year, so focus on the question: “What is it about my experience of Jesus Christ that this Community cannot live without?” Anyone who would like an emailed version please email This email address is being protected from spambots.

Queensland Synod Lenten Studies 2005 series
Experiencing Jesus, is now available for use by small groups in congregations for study and reflection during Lent. They may also be used at other times during the year. The series of five studies will open up Biblical reflections on different ways people experience Jesus through change, healing, freedom, a second chance and real purpose. The studies will work best for small groups but may be used by individuals. These studies are provided free and can be photocopied for each member of your congregation or group. Congregations might encourage existing groups to study this material or plan to establish short-term groups which can meet in the time leading up to Easter. The studies are available for free download at http://www.journey.ucaqld.com.au/specialsynod/lentstudy05.php

"One Light, Many Journeys"

The Catholic Education office in Brisbane has prepared these studies with the possibility in mind of Christians from different traditions meeting together. Participants are invited to listen to the scriptures, reflect on their experiences and share their faith journeys. The overall theme is "Communion" and the six studies are: 1. Light for the journey. 2. To shine like the sun. 3. Sharing the light. 4. Light of the world. 5. To see the light. 6. Journey through darkness. Children's materials are also available.
