The Lectionary Year of Luke is fast approaching.  Are you a minister looking to refresh your understanding and approach to this gospel? Pilgrim College and eLM are offering you an opportunity to enrol as an audit student (or for credit) in an intensive unit; to gather with colleagues as you delve deep into Luke – beginning with the infancy narratives in time for Advent, continuing in February in time for Lent and concluding in March. Parallel workshops will be offered for ministers keen to focus on the themes of Luke as they might be borne out in preaching and liturgy.

The choices we make about how we live often reflect what is going on in our inner lives. What does Jesus have to say in the Beatitudes about this? Come and have a fun weekend with other families as we explore the realms of inside out. We will be drawing on the wisdom of the Enneagram as well as the film ‘Inside Out’ to explore our inner and outer lives and finding ways of bringing these together.

Are you wanting to deepen your approach to preaching or teaching the Psalms in your ministry?  Or maybe you rare preach on the psalms at all because you don’t feel equipped enough? Perhaps you are leading a community through some particularly difficult time – how might the psalms be a resource in your pastoral care and preaching? This unit will support your practice of ministry by deepening your understanding of the biblical text and their pastoral, visionary power.
