In Melissa’s second sermon in the series on being Mennonite, she drew from Matthew 18:15-20 and Acts 15:22-35 and focused on discernment and decision making within the body. The concept of the “priesthood of all believers” is an Anabaptist distinctive. It’s a part of what binds us together. How we go about making decisions matters as much as the decision itself.
We live into these decisions borne out of our shared life, out of our listening, out of listening to those at the margins, out of trusting each other. That’s the work we’ve been given to do.
