The Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches grieves the senseless loss of life of people at worship at the Centre Culturel Islamique du Québec, Ste. Foy, Quebec, Jan. 29, 2017. Our prayers are with the families of the victims and the larger community that is stunned and suffering from these events.
As a peace church, we condemn violence and we pray that those who perpetrate violence on others would be transformed by the love of Jesus.
We call on our congregations to extend hospitality to our neighbours and to work through actions and relationships to break down walls of fear and division.
