Toronto Spiritual Activist Summit, 2011
UNITY: One World. One Family. One God.
October 21 - 23, 2011 / Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Selected Summit Highlights
Young people gathered for a weekend of discussions about their relationship with God, their neighbors and the world! We formed connections with fellow summiteers, made music with Ben Vaughan and Ashton Glass, we heard from The Mother Church Board of Directors, the President of The Mother Church, interacted with some amazing lectureres and participated in workshops from dance to acting to writing. Bascially, it was a weekend of inspiration.
Marta Greenwood, President of The Mother Church concluded the summit by saying “We need a movement of healers, not a movement of patients.” We all left feeling united in our mission to heal the world.
