17  PARTICIPANTS OF INKANYEZI HIV-AIDS ORGANISATION, ORANGE FARM, JOHANNESBURG,   PARTICIPATED IN A RETREAT AT  CORDIS FACILITATED BY SR. BENEDICT MOKGESENG

Inkhanyezi reports that this retreat came at the  right time. They had so many issues that needed to be attended to within the organisation in terms of anger, transparency, team spirit amongst care-workers and management.

Bible sharing: The text taken from the  Mark 10:46-52 was  relevant  as part of  a healing session as it helped them to deal with anger.  Also they wrote down everything that was holding them back, their anger and frustrations, and  thereafter they  burnt and buried everything as a symbol of moving forward.

THE BURNING CANDLE IS A SYMBOL OF HOPE  AND LIGHT IN OUR LIVES.

EVERYONE BURNED EVERYTHING WRITTEN ON A PIECE OF PAPER.

THE BASIN FULL OF WATER IS WHERE WE WASHED OUR HANDS. ITS A SYMBOL OF WASHING AWAY  OUR BURDEN.

THE DUMP IS WHERE WE THREW THE ASHES AND WATER IS A SYMBOL OF THROWING AWAY EVERYTHING THAT WAS HOLDING US BACK.
