Remembrance Day, November 11, 2014

Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) is a worldwide ministry of Anabaptist churches, sharing God's love and compassion for all in the name of Christ by responding to basic human needs and working for peace and justice.

Starting on Nov 1 and in the days leading up to Remembrance Day, MCC is sharing stories of peace on Facebook.  These stories are part of their 30 page resource called "Peace Sunday Packet"

The stories are of people resisting war, making peace in the midst of war, and practicing alternatives to war and violence. Some of them are about the First and Second World Wars, and others are more recent. Some of them are about Mennonites and Brethren in Christ, but many are not. Some stories are about Mennonite Central Committee partners building peace in different parts of the world."
