The great response to the RE Conference has meant that registrations have closed. Over 300 RECs and school leaders will be at ACU July 25-27 to listen Dr Mathijs Lamberigts and other speakers and to participate in workshops and formal and informal discussion round Religious Education. Hope you are part of it. Also, as the Olympics approach, watch out for RESource's new unit on Religion and Sports.

One Hundred Prayers on the Praying Each Day site. Many of these are suitable for assemblies or classroom prayer as well as for your own personal prayer.

Teachers often enquire about interfaith sites. This one prepared by Dominican, Sr Patricia Madigan, contains many links to resources and documents in relation to other faiths.

What's it like to be you? is suggested as a good question to defuse the anger and defensiveness that often occurs in arguments between believers and non-believers.
