Join us for a panel discussion with Dr. David Weaver-Zercher, Sherri Klassen, Katie Steckly, Sam Steiner, Johnny Wideman, and moderator Dr. Marlene Epp

The panel, “Mennonites and the Media: Telling Mennonite Stories Today,” will grapple with the following questions:

  • What is it like to be a creator of Mennonite media content today?
  • What are the challenges of telling Mennonite stories?
  • Who gets to tell Mennonite stories?
  • How do we respond when the “non-Mennonite media” gets it “wrong”?

The idea that Mennonites moved across the Russian Empire as settlers is not new. However, recognition that Mennonites frequently colonized land belonging to Muslims has rarely been incorporated into historical analysis. This public lecture with Aileen Friesen will explore that little known history.

Saturday, January 20, 2018 — 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM EST

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.

Sites of Nonresistance.

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.
