MCC Election Primer

 — Dec. 27, 200527 déc. 2005

We have just celebrated the birth of Jesus, the coming of hope to our world: hope for love and belonging; hope for compassion and sharing; hope for forgiveness and reconciliation; hope for justice and peace.

How does the celebration of Christmas hope shape our interactions during a federal election campaign? An election campaign provides many opportunities for broad discussion with family and friends, neighbours and political candidates about the kind of life that God calls us to speak, act and live into being.

MCC offers this Election Primer based on our work of relief, development and peacebuilding here in Canada and around the world. We invite you to consider along with us how our faith in Jesus Christ enters the public arena and engages public policy. [Mennonite Central Committee]
