Summer 2019 Issue
The work of reconciling love. 2 Corinthians 5:19 says that “God has committed to us the message of reconciliation.” Mennonite Church USA’s bylaws name reconciliation as the center of our work. In a time of great division in our nation’s politics and within our own denomination, the Church’s ministry of reconciliation seems as important as ever. Submissions may consider one of these prompts/questions, among others:
- In what practical ways are individuals within ACC congregations, congregations as a whole, or broader communities sharing love, giving forgiveness, connecting across lines of difference, or pursuing reconciliation?
- What relationships do you see God’s people working to restore and develop?
- What experience would you share about gaining greater understanding or a deeper connection across a line of divide?
Send us your original stories, articles, reflections, poems, and artwork representing your experience and understanding of Jesus’ reconciling love.
