Following Jesus Together as Anglicans and Mennonites
Imagine the church as a jar of kimchi (some Canadians think of kimchi as a Korean sauerkraut). What if we spend a day as a group of Anglicans and Mennonites making kimchi, and exploring what it means to live as Christians who are as different from one another as cabbage is to garlic? This workshop involves making kimchi (no experience required) interspersed with prayer, learning activities, and discussions about how to understand and embrace diversity. How can we follow Jesus when we follow His teachings with such variety? How can Christians live in unity even while they worship and believe in many different ways? At the national level, Anglican and Mennonite theologians are engaged in an ongoing dialogue. Meanwhile, at the local level, this workshop will bring participants together in two churches across the street from each other – starting in one church and finishing in the other. A day for kimchi-making and community-making!
Location: W-K United Mennonite Church (Waterloo, ON) and Church of the Holy Saviour (Waterloo, ON)
