Justice Journey Feb. 25: Synagogues in Germany, a Virtual Reconstruction
Justice Journeys goes to Synagogues in Germany, a Virtual Reconstruction, at the Mennonite Heritage Centre Gallery, Canadian Mennonite University, on Saturday, February 25, at 1:00 p.m. Meet outside the gallery at 1 p.m.; enter the gallery at 1:15.
Join Interim Minister Rev. Nicoline Guerrier for a tour of this 3-D, digital exhibit, illustrating both the architecture of historic German synagogues, and their destruction during WWII. At this time when freedom of religion is again under threat, join in reflection as to the role houses of worship play in both offering sanctuary and cultural survival.
Please join me on occasional outings in and around Winnipeg, all on the theme of justice. Justice Journeys will be for learning, building relationship with local justice-makers or communities seeking justice, standing in solidarity or witness, or simply deepening in commitment to our Second Principle: "Justice, equity and compassion in human relations." Most activities will be at no cost, or for no more than $10/person plus bus fare. We'll meet as a group and gather briefly at the end of each journey to share our reflections.
The Harvest Food Bank is run by a core group of people who volunteer their time on a regular basis, and runs Thursday mornings from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., from autumn through spring.
New volunteers are always welcome. If you would like to help out, please speak with any of our regular volunteers or contact committee chairs Brian Klowak or or Margaret Burnip.
