Church Matters Podcast: Episode 70: Celebrating Peacebuilding Successes
Guest: Dann Pantoja

2012, 15 min and 30 min
On Nov. 11, Canadians across the country commemorate Remembrance Day in honour of the war dead. To honour this day on Church Matters, we want to share a non-violent peace building success story from Mindanao, Philippines.

Dann and Joji Pantoja have represented Mennonite Church Canada peace building efforts in the Mindanao since 2006, where a land conflict has been going on for decades. Christians, Muslims, indigenous tribal people, and the military have been entangled in a struggle without apparent resolve. But recently, a new framework for peace in the region has been brokered. At the heart of this new agreement are the values and principles of the peace teachings of the gospels. Dann and Joji have been at the centre of much of this work, but are quick to say that the foundation for these new peaceful developments has been laid by prior Mennonite peace ministry in the region.
