There are religious groups who have their own response to Remembrance Day.
One of them is the Christian group called the “Mennonite Central Committee” (MCC) (Canadian chapter). Click here to learn more. Here’s a quote from the MCC – Canada website:
“Peace Sunday is an annual opportunity to preach, teach, reflect and act upon the gospel of peace proclaimed and embodied by Jesus Christ. At a time of year when our nation honours military service, Peace Sunday reminds us of Jesus’ call to love our enemies, to resist evil nonviolently, and to live as people of peace. MCC Canada encourages Canadian Anabaptist congregations to observe Peace Sunday in early November, just prior to Remembrance Day.”
Related to this initiative are resources that can be used by churches and individuals, including a “Peace Packet” and a button that can be worn. On the button are the words, “to remember is to work for peace,” and the MCC logo. Click here to learn more about the button.
