getting to know jesus

Getting to Know Jesus is based on Scripture, and allows children to engage with the stories of the bible by exploring the biblical text, reflecting on the text, and deeper discovery of the text. This is done through the use of drama techniques such as Liquid Pictures, Echo Mimes and Number stories to help children experience bible texts in a variety of ways. Catholic Addendum: While Getting to Know Jesus can be used in any Christian setting, it is necessary for those who instruct Catholic children only, to have additional material. This addendum includes an extra lesson and Catholic Corner.

faith & Food: a religious guide to dietary requirements

The Queensland Faith Communities Council (QFCC) celebrates our wonderful and ever growing diversity and encourages all in the Sunshine State to build strong, respectful and inclusive communities. One very enjoyable way of doing this is by sharing food. However, as many cultural and religious traditions have certain dietary requirements, it can sometimes be tricky knowing what foods to serve.

Therefore QFCC has put together this little booklet. Of course, individuals within a tradition may adhere more or less strictly to their particular dietary requirements. If you know your guests well, it is a simple matter of asking them! This could lead to some very interesting conversations. QFCC Website: www.qfcc.org.au
