The Intercollegiate Peace Fellowship (ICPF) conference began in 1948 at Goshen College and represents the peace societies and other peace and justice interested students of Mennonite and affiliated colleges/universities in Canada and the United States. Each year, students organize and host a rotating conference that brings students together to learn from their diverse university experiences.
The February 9-11, 2018 conference hopes to engage not only students, but also members from the surrounding community on the topic of Restorative Justice.
Listening is easy, and listening is difficult. In congregational ministry, in pastoral counselling, in worship settings, in spiritual direction, and in an individual’s walk with God, listening is an important skill that we can learn and re-learn. Join us for a one-day exploration of the skills and the spirituality of listening.
War monuments, cenotaphs and honour rolls remind us daily of the most dramatic and familiar stories of war. This exhibit tells war stories of a different kind, and lays out an alternative memorial landscape—the landscape of nonresistance.
These stories are gleaned from letters, diaries, newspapers, photographs, government documents and family histories found in the Mennonite Archives of Ontario. Together, they paint a picture of the Great War from a “peace church” perspective.
