This week in our Monday morning circle, we sang Happy Birthday to Amber. Then Felix told us that his mother found some old notes from the 60’s that his father had written from lectures that he heard by Karl Koenig, the founder of Camphill.

On Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday everybody worked in their workshops.
On Tuesday evening some of our parents, companions and coworkers went to ‘Just Singing ‘Round’.

This week we had our very first college in 348 House. Forrest gave us an introduction to the theme, religions. We learned that at the beginnings of one religion, written in the Old Testament, Moses brought down the Ten Commandments. Some of the Ten Commandments were: you shall have no other gods before me, you shall not steal, kill or covet your neighbour’s goods. You shall honor your father and your mother and you should keep the Sabbath day holy. Also Forrest read to us a couple of passages from the Bible and then he told us that there are many different religions in the world: Buddhism, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism and Christianity. Every religion has its own beliefs, sacred writings, and religious practices.

After a short break, we all had a bell and eurythmy practice in 348 house.

In the afternoons, we broke into our eurythmy, painting, clay, novel, reading and writing groups.

On Friday afternoon, one group went swimming and another group stayed back and sang with Forrest.
