Into the Dessert
ABM invites you to journey into the Australian desert during Lent with 40 days of bible readings, reflections, sayings and prayer suggestions.
These Lent resources have a particular focus on Australian landscape, history and writing, Aboriginal reconciliation and the long Christian tradition of desert-shaped theology.

A Voice in the Wilderness
LISTENING TO THE ‘STATEMENT FROM THE HEART’
In 2017 the Anglican Church of Australia responded to the historic Statement from the Heart made by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander representatives at Uluru.
General Synod supported the call for a constitutionally-entrenched First Nations’ Voice to the Commonwealth Parliament and asked the Public Affairs Commission to prepare resources in consultation with the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Anglican Council.
ABM has responded with an 8-part study designed to help the church listen to the Statement from the Heart and to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Christians.
Spiritual Practices for Lent (New Eden Ministry)
Lent is the penitential season where Christians imitate Christ’s suffering and temptation in the desert by fasting for forty days leading up to Easter. In the Western tradition, one does not fast on Sundays, in remembrance and celebration of Christ’s resurrection. Fridays, on the other hand, are a time for intensified fasting, in remembrance and lament for Christ’s death. Below is a simple spiritual practice which can be used during Lent. It includes practices for the inner and outer person.
