Winnipeg, Man.— Canadian Mennonite University student Miriam Rempel joined MC Canada staff recently to “team paint” the office lobby window during a lunch break. The glass gets the Christmas treatment annually as a way to brighten the day for visitors entering the building, as well as offering a witness to newcomers. Receptionist Karen Peters says, “We get a lot people from various backgrounds that come through our office. The window says a little bit about who we are and hopefully it brightens their day.” This year, the guiding star of the east adorns the south facing panes, creating a feast of vivid colour over the entire lobby when the midday sun shines through.
