MW Canada Proposal for June 30, 2019

Greetings from Mennonite Women Canada!

Our Executive Committee and Transition Team have had a busy spring.  Early in April we sent out our Spring issue of Connections.  We now have an update to the proposal that was printed in that issue.  This document is an edited version and consists of three parts:  1) Proposal to dissolve;  2) Proposal for distribution of assets;   3) Proposal to remove restrictions on the PPLF.  These will be voted on at our lunch meeting on June 30, 2019 in Abbotsford BC during the Mennonite Church Canada Gathering.  To attend our lunch meeting you will need to register on line at http://ignitegathering2019.ca/registration/ or by contacting Janette Thiessen at 604-850-6658 or admin@mcbc.ca Monday thru Friday.  Early registration ends May 27.

The theme for our meeting is “To Everything a Season”.
We hope to see you there!

Women Walking in Faith - February 2018 - Conversation Circles


Kathy Giesbrecht, Mennonite Church Manitoba staff person on Mennonite Women Manitoba wrote an article in the February 18, 2019 Canadian Mennonite.  She shares: 

"Last fall, ignited by curiosity about what we would hear if we invited women to share their experiences of life within Mennonite Church Manitoba congregations, Mennonite Women Manitoba decided to host two Conversation Circles, one in Winnipeg and the other in southern Manitoba."   . . . . . "Overall, these Conversation Circles turned out to be powerful experiences of intergenerational storytelling and cross-congregational connecting, offering many words of encouragement and hope."

Larissa Pahl, associate pastor of Morden Mennonite Church, left, and Elsie Wiebe were active participants in the Conversation Circles last fall.

Women Walking in Faith - December 2018 - Christmas rush

Mel Harms, our Saskatchewan Rep, wrote an article called "Christmas rush - Finding a time and a place for both Mary and Martha".  It appeared in the December 17, 2018 issue of the Canadian Mennonite magazine.  
She ends her article by saying, "My goal this year is to let my Mary side out more.  My Martha side can go crazy at the beginning of the evening, but afterwards she needs to step aside so my Mary can have a chance to visit, relax and just enjoy the more peaceful moments."
