This inquiry unit demonstrates one way that the interconnected key ideas in the Christian Living strand: Christians are called to love and serve all people and Christians have a responsibility in and for the world can be combined to provide the framework for an action-oriented unit.
Having explored the concept of service through a number of introductory activities, students move on to inquire into the concept of mission as Jesus lived it, as Christians live out their commission and how they have been equipped to do that. Bringing that into the context of the world today, students identify the mission and activities of Human Rights and Aid organisations and complete the unit by developing a plan of (service) action they themselves carry out.
