Plumbing the Depths –
new CPD resource for FE chaplains
Ever felt a bit like Jonah? Perhaps you have felt called to do a challenging job – are you getting stuck in? Or running away? Do you sometimes feel swallowed up by the size of the task? Or maybe things are going well and your work is making a difference?
Plumbing the Depths is a new resource designed to facilitate reflection on experiences of calling and ministry, based on themes from the Book of Jonah. It was developed by Sarah Brush and Toni Coulton with additional material by Chris Polhill, and 24 specially-commissioned illustrations by Si Smith. The resource is published by West Midlands Churches’ FE Council.
Plumbing the Depths is now available for a suggested donation of £9. Contact WMCFEC to order.
West Midlands Churches’ FE Council are also currently developing two further initiatives:
- ROUNDED – a suite of interactive, flexible format resources for use with 16-19s on Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development themes
- A series of film shorts introducing FE chaplaincy, for use with local churches and colleges
These should be available by the end of 2019 – watch this space!
