Being Mennonite: Body – Jan. 15, 2017

Melissa Florer-Bixler speaking on Sept. 18, 2016Melissa started a new four-part series on Mennonite identity this Sunday. Before the sermon, Pam read the poem “Mennonites,” by Julia Kasdorf and Joy read the response, “A New Mennonite Replies to Julia Kasdorf,” by David Wright.  (Sorry, cant’ find a version of the second one online.)

The sermon text was from Colossians 3:12-17 and I Corinthians 12:12-26.

Being Mennonite is not something rooted in birth or cultural traditions. It’s a disposition of patience, a slow coming into the life of a community, being vulnerable to one another’s voices, of learning how to receive the gift of another.

We’re all in this together as a community, where everyone has a part, where every person sings a song.
