This week in our Monday morning gathering, we sang our Whitsun and May songs. After that Deepak told us about today in history. In 1903, the entertainer, Bob Hope was born. He lived to be 100 years old. In 1911 the very first Indy 500 took place in Indianapolis and in 2015, the very first woman named Danica Patrick won in the Indy 500. President J.F. Kennedy was born in 1917. Last but not least in 1922, the country of Ecuador won independence from Spain. Then everybody shared their weekends and John spoke to us about the stars. Gundula and Scott looked back at the weather from last week. After that Marie-Reine said the ‘Soul Calendar’ verse for this week.
On Tuesday morning the Fibre Arts and Basket workshop went on an outing to Christ Church Cathedral on Burrard Street in downtown Vancouver. During our visit we saw a textile exhibit, entitled (in)finite: Spiritual Conversations In Cloth. Each of the pictures was made by stitching, weaving and patching. Some were made by local artists so we had a chance to speak to them about their work. We enjoyed exploring the different exhibits.
In our Thursday morning College, we sang our June and Whitsun songs. After that Ruth T. told us that the story of Parzival takes place in the ninth century. Although it is a legend, there are many historical facts also. After that Lina drew pictures of the first and second scene on the blackboard. Then we sang two songs from the story. After a short break, we practiced our bell playing. Also a couple of people from CLBC came over to visit and to see our program.
On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday afternoon, we broke into our eurythmy, painting, clay, reading, writing, art studio, games, dancing and youth groups.
