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.

New Initiative: Stewardship Study Group
How do you understand stewardship, as contrasted with fundraising? In the church setting, fundraising takes place in earnest once a year, at the time of the annual pledge campaign. Stewardship, by contrast, is one of the church's ongoing ministries. Stewardship - the practice of growing and caring responsibly for the church's resources - is one of the ways in which people can feel called into service, as they put their religious and spiritual values into action on behalf of the congregation and its larger purpose.
What would it look like if the church offered training and support in the area of stewardship, just as it does for people who want to enhance their skills in teaching children, leading worship, or offering respectful caring to each other? That's what the Stewardship Study Group is about.
