Unlock Baptism Preparation

Baptism Preparation material to use with students can be hard to find. Unlocking Baptism Preparation while designed for adults could be adapted for students quite easily. It has some great hands on learning strategies. I especially like those involving dirt and chocolate. I mean what could be better than that! Big shout out to my colleague across the ditch (in New Zealand) Anne who I pinched this idea from.

It would also be well worth you while to have a look at all the other resources that Unlock Urban have on their website.. There are all kinds of Bible engagement resources and activities. Many of them use clips from movies.

Because he lives!

Sometimes the Mormons create some great videos. I like this video a lot, apart from the scene with Jesus resurrected, but then has anyone ever done that well. This video has beautiful imagery. It is tasteful and yet still powerful. It has a great message and is well constructed.

It is possible that some people may choose not to use the video because it comes from the Church of the Latter Day Saints. I myself would be a bit conflicted. While the video itself is great I am not sure how comfortable I would be with it pointing to the Mormon website at the end.

Habits of Heart

Check out the new Habits of Heart webpage. At the moment there are a few videos and you can download the Habits images. In time this site will be populated with resources to use with the Habits of Heart.

Uniting World Lent Resources

Uniting World has a whole host of worship and other Lenten resources at their Lent Event webpage. 

The resources have a social justice focus as might be expected. The worship resources contain all kinds of prayers, readings and other liturgical materials. Each week has a specific country as the focus. There is also a children's resource that could either be used in worship or within a religious education setting.
