For many years now, ABM has been providing the church with high quality, Australian resources. Beautifully produced, carefully researched and faithful to the call of God as expressed through the Anglican Marks of Mission.
In 2021 we continue our quest for the best by introducing our first online study, ‘God Was On Both Sides Of The Beach’, an exploration of the 150th anniversary of the ‘Coming of the Light’ celebration.
On the 1st of July 1871, the London Missionary Society boats arrived in the Torres Strait and, in an amazing act of reciprocal kindness and courage, were welcomed by the local people. 150 years on, the Gospel has taken root in the Torres Strait and a powerful local church exists, largely unknown to the rest of the Anglican community.
Presented online by ABM Education Missioner, Steve Daughtry, the studies will be available to interact with via Facebook, YouTube and Vimeo. Listen, learn – then pause the presentation to discuss the questions and share what you’ve discovered.
The voices we will be hearing will be those of (among others) Queensland Anglicans, Aunty Dr Rose Elu, (who has been recently been awarded Queensland Senior Australian of the Year 2021) and the Rev’d Canon Victor Joseph.
Aunty Rose is a Senior TI Elder, a linguistics scholar, a member of General Synod Standing Committee and a member of NATSIAC.
Rev’d Victor is an Anglican priest from Moa Island in the Torres Strait. He is Principal of Wontulp-Bi-Buya College in Cairns, and a member of the ABM Board.
Spend time ‘sitting’ with Aunty Rose and Victor as they help us understand the history, the present and the future of the Indigenous church in a unique way.
Studies will be available online during Lent.
