Not thrilled

Why am I not thrilled about a Mennonite Heritage Week (“Heritage Week Causes Division in Canada”) to be celebrated every year in Canada (or anywhere)? Perhaps there are too many things about us that I don’t want to celebrate, and this will help us gloss over our failures. It smacks of standing on the street corner to pray. I wish our celebrations could be done in secret.
