Course weeks

Themed weeks in the Bernese Oberland, summer 2017

Bible week - 4 to 11 June 2017 (Sunday to Sunday)

The topic for this week is “Der Kleiderschrank Gottes” (The Wardrobe of God). Together, we will use priests’ vestments from the Old Testament and the armour described in the New Testament to find out about the different biblical articles of clothing, and to get dressed in them ourselves. As a group, we aim to enjoy the riches in the word of God and the beauty of nature. Springtime in the mountains is particularly idyllic in June. We will adapt our activities to take account of the weather and people’s particular needs.
With Esther Hiltebrand from Illnau.
