"You're planning a pandemic?" That's what a few people have asked when they hear that Mennonite Church Canada has created a Pandemic Task Force.If we aren't planning a pandemic, though-and we aren't-why should MC Canada be concerned about a possible pandemic? Isn't that a job for the government and health agencies?As the people of God, the church is called to witness to the reign of God in every context and situation, to be a channel of God's healing, to be God's presence in our communities. That is why MC Canada Witness has called together a task force on pandemic preparedness from a church perspective, the first such national church effort in Canada. Support and involvement from Mennonite Disaster Service and Canadian Mennonite University strengthen this effort.
