Diocese of Natal youth celebrates Earth day at Karkloof canopy tours
Young people of Pietermaritzburg archdeaconry and uMvoti celebrated earth day at their Creation care interactive day in Karkloof canopy tours just outside Howick. The day started off with ziplining across the forest followed by a talk by Belinda Crawford; a consultant who does job readiness workshops for unemployed youth as post matritulants. After that a teambuilding game was played around the table which needed each person’s focus and fast reaction.
As the day went by; a second round of ziplining was enjoyed then an interactive forest walk led by Catherine our host followed. At the centre if the beautiful clean Karkloof rain forest, Fr Thapelo Masemola led us in meditation where he channelled us towards a personal journey of appreciation of God’s presence in the form of what see in the middle of the forest.
Each individual found a spot to collect their thoughts and prayers silently. As we finished our 1 hour walk inside the forest, reflections were made where each young person shared their thoughts and significance of God’s presence in what we see, feel, hear and believe.
Lunch was served after!
