Whats New in Resources

This week we have added Life to the Full and Daring to See God Now, two ecumenical courses from York Courses

Life to the Full is a brand new four-session ecumenical course for discussion groups  – ideal for Advent (or any time of year).

Modern mindfulness techniques stress the importance of emptying yourself in order to feel better inside. Not so with the Christian faith. Our chief pursuit is fullness. ‘I have come so that they may have life, and have it to the full’, says Jesus Christ. And yet – if we’re honest – it doesn’t always feel like that. This course explores what it might actually mean to experience fullness in the midst of our messy lives. What does it look like? Why does it seem so elusive? What causes us to run on empty? And how can we lead others to experience this fullness?

Daring to See God Now is an ecumenical course for discussion groups in five sessions, written by Bishop Nick Baines, comprising course booklet, audio material and transcript. Ideal for Lent, yet not Lent-specific.

Mark’s Gospel begins with Jesus ‘proclaiming the Good news of God’. But, what is this ‘good news’, and who is it for? Taking Mark 1.14-15 as a starting point, this course raises important questions about change, repentance, and how we can become in ourselves living evidence of the good news.

The course booklet includes a good selection of questions at the end of each of the five sessions, designed to stimulate wide-ranging discussion.

Both courses comprise course booklet, audio and transcript, all of which are available to borrow as a pack.
