The Restoration Project was written and compiled by Jess Pinkerton and Paul Wetzig from the Uniting Church, Synod of Queensland. They write:
Over the last ten years there has been an explosion of television shows focussed on building and furniture restoration. Shows like The Repair Shop, Fixer Upper, The Block, Flip or Flop all focus on restoring the old and bringing life to the discarded.
This Lent, we invite you to join us as we learn about the greatest restoration project of all time. Over seven weeks we’ll focus on God’s plan for humankind – a plan for restoration, a plan for new life, a plan that was both unexpected and brilliant.
There are four parts to the resource:
- Worship Resource (for worship services):
- Including Lectionary Readings, Bible Themes, suggestions for Interactive Activity, Liturgy and Prayers, Tool and Restoration Facts, Restorative practices, and Conversation Starters that can be used in worship. This resource is intentionally designed to help churches prepare worship services during the season to engage people of all ages and will be suitable for all congregations regardless of size, demographic, or location.
- Bible Reflections (for Church members and families):
- Connected to the weekly worship resource with tool and restoration facts, prayer ideas, bible readings, reflection, discussion questions, restorative practice, and links to additional resources for use by individuals, groups, and families of all ages and sizes during the season.
