    Ears to Hear - Learning from Women's Voices



    Each year at The Meeting House we have a Peace & Reconciliation series that addresses important social and relational issues within secular society and within the Christian Church. Associated with that series we also host an “Ears to Hear” event, which gives us an opportunity to listen to and learn from voices that have been underrepresented in the historic life of the Western Church in which we find ourselves. Last year we were blessed to hear from non-European...

    Radical Christians and the Word of God (Part 3 of 3): Application

    Praying hands

    We believe in the authoritative, infallible, inerrant Word of God – and his name is Jesus. 

    "All the Scriptures, both the Old and the New Testaments, on every hand, point us to Christ Jesus that we are to follow him."
    ~ Menno Simons (16th Century)

    Welcome back to our concluding post in this series. If you didn’t catch the first two posts, do not read further, do not pass go, do not collect two hundred dollars. Instead, go  here  and start at the beginning....

    Radical Christians and the Word of God (Part 2 of 3): Inerrancy

    Praying hands

    We believe in the authoritative, inerrant, infallible Word of God – and his name is Jesus.

    Welcome back! In this second part of our series on Scripture we’re talking about the idea of biblical inerrancy, why many Anabaptists like myself don’t use the term to describe what we think about the Bible, why that makes some Evangelicals uncomfortable, and why this should be an issue for rich discussion and debate, not division. (If you haven’t read part 1 yet,...

    Radical Christians and the Word of God (Part 1 of 3): Authority

    Praying hands

    We believe in the authoritative, inerrant, infallible Word of God – and his name is Jesus.

    This is the first of three blog posts on the authority, inerrancy, and application of the Word of God from an Anabaptist Christian perspective. Anabaptism is a 500 year old movement that primarily formed on the heels of the Protestant Reformation, and became known as  the Radical Reformation . “Radical” is a good word to describe Anabaptists, since it comes...

    Where Sunday School Failed Me

    Kids & Youth Curriculum

    When I was a youth pastor, I remember having a young man tell me that he had learned so much in his time with me. I was humbled, but curious what was behind him saying that to me, I asked him what it was that prompted him to say that. He told me that in his previous church experience, he had been taught stories from the Bible in a very detached way from his own life, and that sometimes they had a “punch line” of sorts but without any clear application to life, connection to Jesus...

    THE "F" WORD

    rings


    (RE)UNION 9 of 10

    Just a friendly reminder today that the biblical word for “faith” ( pistis ) is the same word for “faithfulness” (also  pistis ). We are saved by faith (trust) which will manifest itself in a lifelong committed love relationship (faithfulness).

    It’s that way with any marriage isn’t it. When Nina and I were married, our vows to each other were a one time act of trust (faith), which means that we will now live in committed...
