Mennonite Church Canada executive director Willard Metzger, right (in black), marches through the streets of Durban, South Africa, in support of climate justice with other people of faith at the UN Climate Change Forum in 2011. He attended as an unofficial observer on behalf of the World Council of Churches.
Willard Metzger accepts writing invitations from various organizations and publishers to help increase engagement with Anabaptism on a wider level. Thanking God with Integrity: Table Graces & Scripture for a World of Need encourages gratitude while increasing awareness of those who live with less. He contributed to ‘Living Ecological Justice,’ a faith-based learning tool helping Canadian Christians care and advocate for creation.
