2018 Lent Resources

New Study Resource – Hear our Stories

When the General Synod of the Anglican Church of Australia met in September 2017, it affirmed the importance of the Global Goals Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), encouraged theological engagement with the goals, and called the church to action on the SDGs.

This Lent, ABM brings you a Lent study that will help you to explore, theologically reflect, and act upon the Sustainable Development Goals. You will hear transformative stories from around the world of Anglican communities grappling with global challenges.

The study has been written by Dr Julianne Stewart. Julianne has worked for over nine years as ABM’s International Programs Director. She has heard, and carries within her, hundreds of stories of people she has lived alongside, and people who have taught her about the reign of God. Julianne shares some of these stories with the church, bringing her experiences into conversation with the scriptures and the Sustainable Development Goals.

The Lent study consists of 7 individual studies that have been designed around the lectionary readings for Ash Wednesday and each Sunday in Lent. They have been designed for group discussion but are also suitable for individual reflection.

‘Stories indeed reflect our common humanity and bind us to one another in a common destiny, apparently even beyond time and space.’ – William Bausch

The Lent study, “This Lent, Hear the Stories”, can be downloaded as a single A4 document, or printed as a booklet (A5, A4) using your printer settings.
