Understanding and Using Ubuntu to transform the world we co-create.

Conference on Saturday 8 February 2014

 

St John’s Meopham

 

10 am – 12 noon

 

Have you ever wanted to learn more about Ubuntu after listening to Archbishop Desmond Tutu and others speak about how much we in the north need this gift from the southern hemisphere?

 

Joy Dumsile Nwdanwe is both a fourth generation Anglican Christian and steeped in the practice and understanding of the indigenous knowledge system of Ubuntu.

 

She is a distinguished author and speaker and has kindly accepted the Diocese of Rochester’s invitation to visit us from Swaziland. Joy will be working with a number of schools in north Kent that are using Ubuntu to transform behaviours and optimise whole school progress and wider community engagement.

 

Joy has kindly agreed talk to clergy and laity from the Diocese at a Conference to be hosted at St John’s Meopham on Saturday 8 March from 10 am to 12 noon about what Ubuntu might offer us for our parish and community life.

 

Please e-mail mjhenwood@btinternet.com to confirm your attendance. Tickets only. Individuals £5.00 or Pairs £2.50 each!

 

Reverend Martin Henwood, Bishop of Rochester's Advisor for Thames Gateway.
