Men’s Retreat at Hills of Peace


To those of you who are being invited for the first time, welcome we hope you will join us this year.
The Community of Christ is a global church committed to the Pursuit of Peace We Proclaim Jesus Christ and Promote Communities of Joy, Hope, Love and Peace. We work to be the hands and feet of Christ in our world and believe that we as disciples have a place in bringing about the Beloved Community of God here on earth.
This years guest minister is Frank Young a missionary from Montana who has been actively living out his discipleship in the First Nations communities and working to re-integrate released offenders into the community as whole people with a grounding in Christ. Frank has a wealth of experience and has also served as the chaplain to the Billings, MT Police service.
This is a weekend where we get to hang out and fellowship and re-connect with our God and old friends and establish new friendships. The weekend starts on Friday night and ends Sunday at noon. We try hard not to try to hard so there is time just to hang out because we hate having every second of our lives filled. We hit all ages – high school to 88 years old and have the complete spectrum of attendees – theologists, members,friends of members, unchurched, 5 year veterans and rookies. We eat often – and well.
Please register with Dan Esch or on the 6th Annual Community of Christ Mens Retreat facebook page by September 10 so we have an accurate count for our cooks who we definitely want to keep happy!IMG_0251_thumb3_thumb

As you may have heard, World Accord is beginning the process of branching out into the greater community - starting with our own back yard of Kitchener-Waterloo, Cambridge and Guelph.  Our first attempt ever at building awareness here will be a special event.  It will be an intimate dinner with Dr. David Suzuki at the Borealis restaurant in Kitchener.   Borealis is all about using local "everything".  The keynote address will be on achieving sustainability in our lifetime.  We will also have a pre-event called the World Accord Passport to Sustainability Tour where locals are encouraged to visit participating suppliers of local food, goods and services.  First they pick up a Passport and then get it stamped as they visit these local suppliers.  The stamped passports become their draw tickets.  Then we have a remote radio feed from the St. Jacobs Market on the day of the draw to win two seats at David Suzuki's table.  There will also be another draw to win a Construction Expedition for one to Honduras. 
As the focus of this event is all about building awareness, most of the tickets for the dinner (there only 100 tickets in all - we want it to be very intimate and special)  will be going to the sponsors for the event and also used as prizes for radio stations to give away in their contests.  World Accord will be splashed everywhere in the lead up to the event.  The social media wires will be humming and it has started already.  We wanted you to hear about it here first.   Visit for more information.  We will have a few tickets for sale that will be done through telephone sales that start at a specific date and time.  To keep everything fair - this is the only way tickets will be sold.  (Though there are a fixed number of tickets set aside for corporate sales that will not be handled the same way and of course they are more expensive)  Keep an eye on the website and on our facebook page if you interested in tickets. 

Peace and Blessings
David Barth, Executive Director
World Accord   1C - 185 Frobisher Dr.
