Peace and peacemaking lie at the heart of MCC. Seeking God's peace is embedded in all that we do. From resisting violence, to building bridges between people of different faiths and cultures, to undoing oppression from sexism or racism, MCC is committed to the way of peace.
Can you help create a teacher resource for a peace-oriented Remembrance Day?
2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War I. The Canadian government will give significant prominence to this anniversary, much of it happening in the lead-up to Remembrance Day.
MCC wishes to provide a simple resource to teachers planning a Remembrance Day observance for their school -- a resource which offers a peace perspective to Remembrance Day and to the centenary of World War I. This resource will seek to be sensitive to the memories of Canadians who fought in World War I (and subsequent wars), but it will also invite students to consider the idea that war can and must be prevented. The resource will be one that is suitable for use in public schools and for different age levels from elementary to senior.
MCC seeks one or more individuals who would be willing to help create this resource prior to September, 2014. Individuals should understand and support MCC's commitment to nonviolent peacemaking and have some experience in developing teacher resources. An honorarium, to be negotiated, will be provided to the individual(s) who is (are) accepted to take on this assignment. Interested persons should contact Esther Epp-Tiessen at MCC Canada for more information by April 15, 2014.
