Up From the Waters: Reflecting, Sharing & Living the Gospel
New resource for 2017 (Year A). The Gospels include the three fundamental texts for our baptismal journey to Easter: the encounter between Jesus and the Samaritan woman at the well; Jesus healing the blind man and the washing in the pool of Siloam; and the raising and unbinding of Lazarus to new life.
The Gospel Reflections have been written by Fr Tony Chiera (Vicar General, Diocese of Bunbury) and Dr Jason McFarland (Assistant Director, ACU Centre for Liturgy). The opening and closing prayers have been written by Erica Marshall. The prayers and rituals have a beauty and simplicity incorporating the symbol of water throughout the six weeks of Lent. Each week there is a personal story or testimony to how the baptismal call has altered and transformed the life of the individual. The program will be suited to all parishioners either to use individually or in groups. It will be particularly helpful for adults who are preparing for initiation at Easter. The leader’s guide (included in the book) provides clear instructions and tips for the group facilitator.
The elements for each week of the program are: prayer (opening and closing prayers in the book, hymn on audio), Gospel (book and audio), Gospel Reflections (book, audio and video) questions for reflection and sharing (book) and Living Our Baptismal Call (suggestions and ideas for living as a ‘missionary disciple’ day to day).
