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.

Thursday, November 15, 2018 — 4:00 PM EST

Join Bill Randall in considering the many respects in which aging is an inherently spiritual process—not religious necessarily, but spiritual (broadly defined). Despite prevailing perceptions of aging as a matter of inevitable decline, the challenges and changes that come with it can be experienced as Nature’s way of nudging us into the adventure of truly growing old (versus just getting old)—growing in insight, understanding, and compassion.

Friday, November 16, 2018 — 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM EST

Spirituality, Aging, and Narrative: The Sacred Art of Story Listening, with Bill Randall

Come explore the intersections between spirituality and narrative, and between narrative and aging, focusing on both the unique developmental tasks of later life, and the challenges aging poses to our stories. The afternoon will introduce the sacred art of story listening and prepare participants to provide narrative care.
