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.

Free Public Lecture

Addressing what many consider the world's most intractable conflict, Naim Ateek offers a succinct primer on the theology of liberation in the context of the Palestinian struggle for freedom and self-determination. He proposes a strategy for biblical interpretation that emphasizes the prophetic themes of inclusivity and justice. He concludes by providing broad principles for achieving security, peace, and justice for all the peoples in Israel/Palestine.
