Diocese of Pretoria Sunday School Training The Diocese of Pretoria hosted a Sunday School Training on the 13 of May 2017 at Holy Trinity, Rustenburg. Blessed with showers, the day began with a morning service led by the diocesan environmental chaplain, who highlighted the purpose of teaching the importance of education children from a very tender age about care for creation. With that in mind the training began with an overview presentation of our current environmental issues and some of the things our churches could do to reduce carbon foot print.
Split amoung the diocesan coordinators, the activities were quite easy to present, as some of them were explain in their local language. Boipelo Tau, Katlego Motswagae and Itumeleng Segkothe, who are some of the most active youth members in the environmental ministry, in the diocese, vowed to train other Sunday school teachers who could not make it for this training.
After presenting all the sessions, the Sunday school teachers were grouped to each prepare a session which includes a lesson, a game and a song. Little did we know that they would go as far as creating drama, it was a very colourful presentation with different languages, games and songs.
The training was a success, it is often rare to find people who stay true to their roots, and it was extremely beautiful to see originality, the Sunday school teachers in the Diocese of Pretoria owned Ryan the Rhino and did it their way.
