While living in the United States, I thought a lot about J.
Mountaintop removal. Tar sands. Mass destruction of earth and creation for
sake of getting at the coal and oil underground.
A statement made by Mennonite Church Manitoba’s Executive Director Ken
Warkentin concluding a recent Canadian Mennonite piece “
I wanted to share something in my sermon this Sunday that reflected my
experience at Assembly 2012. I decided to reflect on the two passages that
conclude Being a Faithful Church document 4 (BFC 4). Here is the sermon I
came up with. It focused on Hebrews 5:12-14For though by this time you
ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the basic elements
of the oracles of God. You need milk, not solid food; for everyone who lives
on milk, being still an infant, is unskilled in the word of righteousness.
But solid food is for the mature, for those whose faculties have been trained
by practice to distinguish good from evil.
