This Advent season, we issue an invitation to celebrate the role of civil society — churches, voluntary citizens’ groups and other non-profit organizations — by joining MCC in encouraging our governments to protect and support their important work.
In a world of violence and injustice, living into hope is a faithful, courageous witness. For over 100 years, MCC has witnessed and walked alongside churches and grassroots organizations in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and North America who have modelled speaking out against violence and defending hope in the midst of injustice. In these contexts, hope is strong and audacious, radically demonstrating the upside-down order Jesus embodied: a Kingdom where children lead (Isaiah 11:6), the dead live (Matthew 28:6), the poor in spirit are blessed (Matthew 5:3) and the captives are set free (Luke 4:18). It is an Advent hope, an upside-down hope of waiting for and living into the Kingdom of God.
MCC - Relief, development, and peace in the name of Christ
