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.
This year’s Peace Sunday Packet focuses on the theme “Praying for peace.” It consists of prayers for peace solicited from MCC workers, staff and partners from around the world.
