Praying for peace
To clasp the hands in prayer is the beginning of an uprising against the disorder of the world.
— Karl Barth (1886-1968)
MCC invites congregations to observe Peace Sunday on November 12, 2017---close to Remembrance Day---or another appropriate Sunday.
Remembrance Day is a time when our country focuses attention on Canada’s military history and the sacrifice of Canadians who gave their lives in war. For Anabaptist churches, it is a time to remember that followers of Jesus are called to be people of peace.
