LETTER: Town hall blessing appropriate

LETTER: Town hall blessing appropriate

Blessing was compatible with an event focused on social justice and the climate emergency

As a participant and organizer of the Green New Deal town hall event held in Sooke, I’m replying to George McFetridge’s July 3 letter.

It’s not foolishness to give an honorarium for a blessing, just as it’s customary and respectful to give an honorarium to a pastor and an organist at a wedding.

This event’s brief blessing, which was inclusive and non-denominational, was compatible with an event focused on social justice and the climate emergency.
