About the workshop: 

"I think so much of what needs to be done in us, as we grow to love our neighbours, is less about tips and tricks for being a good neighbour, and more about what Jesus is doing in our hearts to turn us towards our neighbours.  This workshop is about nurturing the heart, or inner life, of the person who is called to love their neighbours. We cannot love our neighbours apart from being formed in the rhythms of Jesus who called us to “Love God and Love Neighbour. I call it a kind of spiritual formation of neighbourism."  ~ Preston

Cost:  $20.00 (includes registration, lunch, refreshments)
