Restorative Practices Conference

Cami and I spent three days last week attending a conference presented by the International Institute for Restorative Practices http://www.iirp.org/ in Bethlehem Pennsylvania. I had wanted to attend this conference for many years, but it is usually held overseas, last time in Hungary. This is the Hotel Bethlehem where it was held.

One conference presenter made the point that "If a young person has not gotten into and out of trouble three times by the time they are 18, their education has not been complete."

Here I am in front of a monument on Main Street in Bethlehem. This is a very old (1745) town founded by Moravians, among others. I like the saying: "Drink Pilgrim here, and if thy heart be innocent, here too shalt thou refresh thy spirit."

Our spirits were definitely refreshed here.
