assortment of cards available for sale. Our next order goes in the end of November, if you want specific

Minute for Mission – Supporting Human Rights
The United Church of Canada and Mission and Service global partners believe all people are created
equally in the image of God and all people of the world have a God-given right to a life of dignity and
respect. We stand with people working for human rights around the world.
Peace, development, and human rights are inseparable from the human dignity of individuals and the
well-being of our communities. Without human rights, human dignity is merely an empty wish.
Most countries have agreed on numerous human rights standards and enshrined them in international
law. However, many governments do not meet their obligations and routinely violate the rights of
citizens. In many places in the world people live with the constant threat of violence and intimidation.
For many partners, defending basic human rights has been a costly struggle – sometimes a life-anddeath struggle.
There is a gap between many governments’ words and deeds, promises and actions. People of faith
work to address that gap, answering God’s call to work for justice, peace, and human dignity and to
bring freedom from want and fear.
Your gifts to Mission and Service are present with people and communities working for human rights
and showing compassion for all. Please continue to give generously.
