Catholics for a Changing Church

SLN - Season of Creation 2022 - 4

Catholics for a Changing Church would like to thank the Scotting Laity Network for arranging and hosting this excellent four week course.   This session was particularly good and is well worth watching in order to help us through these times.

The Scottish Laity Network say:

Our Session of Creation Programme focusses on ‘Listening and Responding to the Voice of the Earth and the Voice of the Poor’.

Chris Johnstone was our companion for our final evening and he shared on ‘Sustaining us on our journey’.

It was a wonderful opportunity hear about, and engage with, the empowering and transformational process that is Active Hope.

He has worked in this field for over thirty years, and through his online courses, he now reaches people from more than 55 countries.
