Eric H.F. Law

‘Holy Currencies’ title of 2-day class

Eric H.F. Law, an Episcopal priest and founder of the Kaleidoscope Institute, will lead participants May 3 and 4 in a workshop to explore “Holy Currencies.”

The May 3 workshop begins at 5:30 p.m. with dinner. The May 4 workshop begins at 7:30 a.m. with breakfast and ends at 3:30 p.m. Lunch is included in the registration. All sessions will be held at Wailuku Union Church, 327 S. High St. in Wailuku.

A copy of “Holy Currencies” is included and should be read before the workshop.

A “currency” is something that moves or circulates, and Law identifies six: gracious leadership, truth, money, time and place, wellness and relationships. They interact with one another to create healthy and faithful communities.

The workshop, sponsored in part by the Tri-Isle Association of the United Church of Christ, is open to all who want to register, read Law’s book and participate in the workshop.

The cost is well over $100 per participant. Organizers ask that participants give at least $50 or more if they are able to help others. If the fee is beyond one’s means, they may offer to help and add their service as a “Holy Currency.” Contact Jack Belsom at 283-7900 for more information and to volunteer.
