Peacemobile

Great news of out of Ottawa. Better still! Great news accompanied by pictures! A whole team from the Ottawa congregation packed up their crayons and play dough and cooperative games and activities and took themselves down to the community street festival where they spent the day sharing fun and ideas and concepts about peace with the children and parents that came out.

Happy faces abound in those pictures. What better way to spend a sunny Saturday than teaching children that peace is important and worth learning about. Maybe even worth working at with other children and adults and people of all sizes and colours, ‘cause they were all there. Thanks for the report and the investment, Peacemobile Team!

  2. A small Peacemobile team (Barb K,, Claude and I ) loaded 2 cars with our boxes of goodies this afternoon and headed out to Providence Point to spend a couple of hours with the new campers and companions at Camp Quality - it was so very rewarding as usual - those kids are a wonderful inpsiration - there was Jessie, almost blind and wearing leg braces but determined to do everything, even walking with the 2-man wooden skis - saying a genuine thank you for every helping hand - and his 2 assistants - so loving and patient and generous with the high-fives after a successful activity -- I got to sing Peace Like a River several times as Nicole and her friend Noemi played the bells - we had to start over a few times until we got it really right - Nicky said when she makes a mistake, she likes to start over until she gets it right... such determination! a whole lotta peace happenin' there! -even if the shirts are neon green this year ! : )
