CURRENTS


Submit your content for the Fall 2019 Issue

A recent survey completed by the Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society revealed that there are 67 separate Anabaptist groups operating in the US. Paul Schrag’s editorial in the May 27, 2019 Mennonite World Review mulled over the question of whether this high number reveals an embarrassing division or a healthy diversity. The full answer is likely both, but the diversity does represent a wide variety of unique ways of following Jesus and scripture as we understand them. Like the diversity within Anabaptism, ACC also represents a spectrum of thought and practice, each offering a different experience and unique ministry priorities and perspectives.

Submissions may consider:

  • What has been your experience with diversity within or outside of your congregation?
  • How has your congregation experienced differences within itself?
  • What benefits have you experienced from a diversity of thought and practice?
  • In what ways is the work of the Kingdom helped or hindered by the kind of variety exemplified by US Anabaptism?
  • Amid the diversity, what do you see as ACC/MC USA’s unique contribution to the Kingdom?

Send us your original stories, articles, reflections, poems, and artwork representing your experience and understanding of how we the Church is collectively unique. Content is due by September 6.
