Canada's Premier Hub For Faith In Common Life

Where are you?

BC photographer, Rebecca Rempel, photographs a special lesson in global awareness to children in the Ukraine, pointing out where they are and where she journeyed from.

The earth’s circumference is 40,075 kilometres, yet we hear the adage “what a small world.” How can the world be so big and so small at the same time? Learning where we are in relation to others offers a spatial awareness that opens up a wonder about our world. It makes our familiar bounds sacred to us as we occupy a space we’ve come to know and love well, and it allows us to stretch our minds to people across the globe, wondering what they view as sacred.
