2. Study/Discussion Guide

a. The first is two sets of complementary reflections for use as formation/prayer before meetings etc. These consist of a scripture passage, a precis of the Roman Catholic or Uniting Church perspective of one of the areas, followed by discussion questions and prayer. It is anticipated that each reflection would take approximately 20 minutes.

b. The second resource is intended for use by local ecumenical groups who would meet weekly, for a 90-minute session, over a minimum of four weeks. It explores the Dialogue material in considerably more detail and also provides prayer resources and questions.

Both resources are available for free download from the websites of the Uniting Church Queensland Synod Ecumenical Relations Committee and the Brisbane Roman Catholic Commission for Ecumenism and Inter-religious Relations
