PEER WRITING ASSISTANCE

Carey runs a peer writing assistance programme. If you are a second year, third year (or more!) or postgraduate student, AND have good academic writing skills AND a willingness to help your fellow students with their academic writing, please get in touch with Rob Ayres (Academic Director E: rob.ayres@carey.ac.nz) Training will be provided.

We are looking to form the team for Semester 2 2020, so send your expression of interest to Rob and he will give you further information.

FIRST STEPS

If you are starting in Semester Two you will notice First Steps on your Careyonline courses – this is a required course to introduce you to all things Carey and Academic 😊😊

CAREYONLINE

CareyOnline is the platform where all the course related resources are stored/linked. You should be accessing CareyOnline regularly (at least twice a week!) to check for messages from the teachers and other important notices. Lecture recordings are also linked to from CareyOnline so if you miss a class, or are a distance student you should be watching these in the week when they are posted (typically 24-48 hours after the onsite class). Also remember to check out the 10 Essentials on CareyOnline. This is a great resource to help you with writing assessments and understanding the expectations. It also has useful information about academic literacies : how to write an academic essay, how to reference, how to research for your assessments and more!

‘Quiet Movements’ - Sarah Buckwell (shared in Chapel)

 

You are silent. 
I bring you my worries,
kneeling down before you,
in all that time has made me,
I plead to you my pain.
Yet,
You are silent.

I cry out all the ways,
I need you to move.
All the ways 
I would be okay,
if you just did,
this one thing.
I bargain with you,
and beg,
that you would give me this, 
if I do
a bit more of that.
I beg that you would 
cast her pain 
onto me.
Use what I have 
and give it away
to those I see hurting. 

But despite the 
bargaining of my grief,
You are still,
silent.

But silence 
is not absence.
I know that 
you are here.

I know that 
you have 
bridged the gap,
making a way.
I know that you are 
a way maker.

But I still feel scared.
I still feel alone.
My heart is still hurting.
And those around me 
are still drowning 
in pain.

And then 
you speak.
Not in ways that 
I had thought I would hear.
Not in ways that 
scream back 
at my cries of pain.
Instead 
you move 
quietly.

Just below the surface 
of a calm water.
You.
Are.
Moving.

Moving within my heart 
and all the broken parts 
of my being.
Moving within this world 
and in all the ways 
we have fallen far from you.

Moving amongst us 
to bring us back to you.
Moving through us 
to spread your light.
Moving within us 
to heal our wounds.

So though 
the hurt runs deep,
I will let your love 
run deeper.
Though the world seems dark,
I will find the light of your flame.
No matter how small the flicker.
No matter how cold the embers. 

And each new day
as the sun rises up,
I too will rise up again.

Not always because I feel like it.
But because you have 
shown your love to me
in the past,
so I will walk forward 
testifying through it all,
that it is well with my soul. 

Isn't the salvation we have in Christ extraordinary?
Come on a journey with Dr Sarah Harris this August into Paul's teaching in Romans. You'll discover the vastness of salvation, being raised with Christ, life in the spirit on planet earth and more. All for $100. Monday nights.
