On Epiphany Sunday (January 8, 2017), Greg Laing, Mission Organizer with MB Missions in BC was due to speak to PGIMF, observing that while the media may be prone to hyperbole, most of us would agree that these times seem more turbulent than typical. A recent CBC Headline shouts: “Without Precedent in Modern Times: Why the world’s vortex of crisis will keep swirling in 2017.” As followers of Jesus with Anabaptist convictions we have a clarified mandate to engage our world for peace. What does that mean for us? Based on the foundational promise of Christ to provide peace and empowering to His faithful, Greg’s message was to weave stories from MB Mission workers with practical suggestions on how to “wage peace” where we live.
Regrettably the service was cancelled due to poor weather conditions.
