I started my career teaching through the United Church of Canada at Kung Lee College in Hong Kong in the 70’s. I subsequently taught Developmentally Delayed students, in St John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador. I have two children, Charlene, who is now in Medical school in Ireland, and Stefan, who has just finished a degree in Sports Science and Management. After retirement, I began to work part time in Pastoral Care with Eastern Health – work that I enjoy immensely. Meanwhile, my Church (Gower Street United) promoted the opportunity to contribute in a meaningful way to a just peace in the Holy Lands through a program of the World Council of Churches by becoming an Ecumenical Accompanier. So… after a daunting recruitment and training process, I am about to go to Israel/Palestine.
