Saturday 02: KAIROS Walking We Make the Way
I gave two workshops at the KAIROS conference at St Mary Retreat in Ancaster. They were based on the Green Rule (Do unto the Earth as we would have it do unto us). We made our own posters based on the Christian teachings to be as stewards of the earth and to take care of creation.
On Sunday, I was invited to give a sermon at Melrose United Church in Hamilton. It was really fun.
My presentation was based on Horton the Elephants message; that in order to save a world we need everybody ("no matter how small!") on board!
