Peace Sunday is the Sunday before Remembrance day. The Mennonite Central Committee (MCC is a relief organization that works for peace) each year puts together a theme and curriculum to be used by churches to broaden the Remembrance Day reflections to include non violent ways to work towards peace.
The video above states that “It is more dangerous to be a women then a solider in modern warfare. Following conflict, women are often excluded from decisions that shape their future” It is because of this reality that Mennonites across the country this year will be telling stories of “Women of Peace.”
Everyone is welcome regardless of religious or philosophical leanings. Thinking and talking about peace is an everybody kind of thing.
Peace Sunday at The Commons 6pm on November 6th 128 Hughson St. N. (at the Hooper Law Building across from the Spice Factory)
Please help our private sponsorship and reunification of a family from Syria.
We are part of a group of friends and neighbors in partnership with The Commons church in Hamilton, Ontario who have come to know a special family that have settled in our community.
