Repairing the Breach

ABM’S 2022 new Lenten Study

ABM’s brilliant new Lenten Study for 2022, ‘Repairing the Breach’, is now available.

Including seven studies that take you from Ash Wednesday to Palm Sunday.

Repairing the Breach examines what it means to be people of healing in a broken world. Written by a community of friends for a people of mission – and illustrated with stunning images painted by acclaimed artist, Carol Aust, ‘Repairing the Breach’ inspires, provokes and cajoles.

A truly Australian resource for parishes, study groups and individuals.

The Mission of God is to repair the breach. The people of God are participants in that work.

All breach-repair is relational.

A shamed and scared humanity looks at an immutable God, terrified to approach for fear of rejection and judgement. God, taking the ultimate risk, becomes human, builds relationships, steps into our shoes, loves us and is loved by us. God steps towards us. We step towards God. The Breach is repaired.

A poor community watches in despair as the wealthy nations chase further wealth. A visitor comes, not with answers, but with questions. Dialogue ensues. Every member of the community is consulted. Plans are made. Action is taken together. The breach is lessened. Love, hope, and justice begin their work.

Be part of this exciting new study that leads us to realisation and healing.

‘Repairing the Breach’ is available digitally

…beautifully presented, thoughtfully compiled…This study invites us to walk with Jesus, empowered by the Holy Spirit and to begin again. It asks the hard questions, and for many it will be an uncomfortable journey. However, it also offers a pathway for individuals and communities of faith to begin the process of ‘repairing the breach’ and ‘closing the gap.’… I highly recommend using this study as a resource for your Lenten journey. It will certainly be shaping mine.

By bringing together art, poetry, music, personal stories and sound biblical scholarship, the team from ABM-Australia have produced yet another wonderful Lent study for 2022…I thoroughly recommend this study to parishes, groups and individuals who are looking to “to participate in the adventure of the ‘now but not yet’ kingdom” as they journey through Lent to the Easter mysteries.
