Presented in this book are six Bible studies around the Assembly theme. Beginning with our confession of faith in the Holy Spirit, we go on to study the theme as a whole, and the four sub-themes which provide the link between our confession and the demands it makes on us as we try to live our faith from day to day. Included in each study is a wealth of comments and testimonies from friends in many parts of the world. By being involved in these studies as groups of Christian people, all of us can prepare for and contribute to the Canberra Assembly - and allow the renewal we pray for to start with us in our congregation and our local community.

4 Regional Planning in Australia: A History of Progress and Review of Regional Planning Activities Through the Commonwealth
Australia Commonwealth Department of Post-War Reconstruction 1949 1st Edition Hard Cover Very Good 8vo 
103 pages including a folded large coloured map of Australia. The Commonwealth of Australia first directed its attention toward regional Australia as a specific policy concern under PM John Curtin and the Minister for Post-War Construction and later PM Ben Chifley.

A plan for regional infrastructure and resource development arose through a series of Commonwealth/state conferences, culminating in 1949 with the publication of Regional Planning in Australia by the Commonwealth Department of Post-War Reconstruction. Under the CDPWR, the nation was divided into almost 100 regions leading to, in many instances, the establishment of ‘regional development committees’ (RDCs) that were expected to prepare resource inventories and regional plans ‘directed towards the full development of the region’s resources in order to maintain the maximum population. CONTENTS: PREFACE. PART ONE: CHAPTER ONE - THE GROWTH OF THE REGIONAL PLANNING ORGANIZATION. CHAPTER TWO - REGIONAL PLANNING ADMINISTRATION. CHAPTER THREE - SURVEYS AND PLANNING. PART TWO: CHAPTER FOUR - COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA. CHAPTER FIVE - COMMONWEALTH - STATE PRO]ECTS. CHAPTER SIX - NEW SOUTH WALES. CHAPTER SEVEN - VICTORIA. CHAPTER EIGHT - QUEENSLAND.

There are a lot of things Jamie hates about her life: her dark hair, her dad's Stone Age Charter of Curfew Rights, her real name - Jamilah Towfeek. For the past three years Jamie has hidden her Lebanese background from everyone at school. It's only with her email friend John that she can really be herself. But now things are getting complicated: the most popular boy in school is interested in her, but there's no way he would be if he knew the truth. Then there's Timothy, the school loner, who for some reason Jamie just can't stop thinking about. As for John, he seems to have a pretty big secret of his own ... To top it all off, Jamie's school formal is coming up. The only way she'll be allowed to attend is by revealing her true identity. Will she risk it all? And does she know who she is ... Jamie or Jamilah? 10-14 years.

Sport in Australian History (Australian Retrospectives), Adair, Daryl; Vamplew, Wray
9 Adair, Daryl; Vamplew, Wray Sport in Australian History (Australian Retrospectives)
Australia Oxford University Press 1998 0195535901 / 9780195535907 Reprint Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
169 indexed pages. Australians are often said to be obsessed with sport, and playing and watching sport have long been regarded as national pastimes. Sport in Australian History is an innovative and exciting study of the political, economic, social, and cultural role that sport has played in Australia since European settlement. The authors investigate many of the myths surrounding the place of sport in Australian culture. They demonstrate that, although Australians are far from unique in their fascination with sport, a historical study of their involvement - both as participants and spectators - can nevertheless tell us a great deal about Australian society. Indeed, in many respects, sport can be viewed as a microcosm of wider society, reflecting, for example, attitudes to violence and gender relations. Taking a thematic approach, the authors dwell on the values, ideas, and myths that have shaped the nations sporting culture over time. The book focuses on issues such as the sports industry; the place of women; the participation of groups not traditionally involved in mainstream Australian sport (such as Aborigines, the disabled, ethnic groups, and the aged); the influence of science and technology; and controversial topics such as violence, drugs, corruption, the law, and the role of childrens sport. Readers interested in sport, culture, recreation, and history will find much to enjoy in this challenging and thought-provoking book. Contents: Part 1: Sporting belief,historical record. Part 2: The sports industry. Part 3: Political football. Part 4: Sporting women. Part 5: Groups on the margins - minority experiences in sport. Part 6: Stretching the limits - sports performance. Part 7: Not "playing the game" - problems in sport. Part 8: State of play; major readings.

Another Bloody Sports Book contains dead-set outright proof positive that’ll squash some of sport’s most cherished moments and skewer some of its big names. And it does it all with a big wide grin. In order to come by this kind of highly con?dential and revealing gear it’s handy to have the services of a trio of knockabouts like Malcolm Andrews, John Byrell and Frank Crook who’ve witnessed more mix-ups, muck-ups and biff-ups than Tiger Woods has records.
