MISSION CAPSULE:

World Humanitarian Day is held each year on August 19th to honour those working to provide emergency aid and create a more peaceful and humane world. Emergency situations – either natural disaster or conflict – take a massive toll on communities. In war-torn countries, innocent civilians become caught in the crossfire, forced to flee with nothing. Large-scale environmental disasters create massive food shortages, displacement and disease. Dedicated partners at ecumenical networks such as Canadian Foodgrains Bank and the ACT Alliance enable PWS&D to respond to suffering caused by emergency situations around the world. On this day and every day, we are thankful for the spirit that inspires humanitarian work around the world.

MONDAY, AUGUST 20th, 2018 - Theology on Tap will not be meeting this evening – if you want to drop by for a discussion on whatever, join in at The Beacher Café.
