Peacemaking IS Accompaniment

We joined with Mennonite World Conference congregations around the globe in celebrating Peace Sunday. According to 1 Corinthians, when one of us suffers all of us suffer, and when one of us rejoices all of us rejoice. This, we as global Mennonites were urged to recognize, is peacemaking as accompaniment and solidarity. We got to hear a powerful story from our own Sarah Augustine of solidarity with the Wayana indigenous peoples of Suriname, and specifically with her friend Linia, who longs to protect her children and community from the mercury poisoning in their food supply due to extractive gold mining. [Regrettably, I failed to begin the recording until Pastor Amy's time with children, so the audio recording begins rather abruptly ... sermon begins at 9:35]
