Janice Kreider shared three stories of justice and injustice. The first story was about an Afghan family helped through the immigration process in Vancouver by neighbours, the Sherbrooke Refugee Food Bank, and the Salvation Army. “Stolen Waters, Thirsty People” set the story of the Woman at the Well in the Shoal Lake 40 First Nation (included in the book, Unsettling the Word: Biblical Experiments in Decolonization). The third story was about a Mennonite family in the Holdeman Church deeply affected by a case of alcoholism and shunning. As James 1:27 suggests, may we care for orphans and widows in their distress, and keep ourselves unstained by the world. [KH]
