Striving for integrity

Andre Wiederkehr, of Ontario, Canada, doesn’t have a driver’s license. That’s because he chooses not to use fossil fuels to get around. Without using a car, attending Hanover Mennonite Church on Sundays means riding 21 kilometers by bike. “None of us is really an enthusiastic biker,” says Andre Wiederkehr, who lives on a farm with his brother and parents.

“Remember your baptism”

Could Anabaptist-Mennonites practice “remembering our baptism” as a tool for lifelong discipleship?
“My memories are that I was accompanied by members of the church and by a singing group. On the day of the baptism the atmosphere was festive. I was submerged in the water of a river in my region known as the Kwilu River.”

Prayers of gratitude and intercession

We pray for peace in the whole world: not only regarding wars which are cruel to humanity and also to the environment, but also corruption and ambition for power which harm people. God, deliver us from temptations to violence and power.

We pray for members of the human family who are in the midst of war or violence in their nations. At this time, our hearts cry out especially for our brothers and sisters in Christ in Myanmar, Ethiopia, Ukraine and Palestine. Lord, deliver them and silence the guns and bombs in those countries.

God, may we draw on your Spirit to live out unity in the midst of disagreements and brokenness. May we recognize your image even in those we oppose. May we extend grace to each other as we confess our sin and assume the best intentions even in those with whom we disagree.

We pray for the churches and for their leaders. May they be strengthened through the Spirit of God. May they walk in faith lead and bring the aroma of Christ wherever they go.
