In response to the PeaceSigns article 'Peace Journey 2009: One congregationīs witness' <http://peace.mennolink.org/cgi-bin/m.pl?a=685>:
What a witness! Your congregation, like Columbus Mennonite Church, has re-discovered the centrality of the Gospel of Christ in its witness for peace. You are to be confirmed and encouraged. At CMC we are finding that an invitational approach, to do justice, love mercy and walk humbly, is a good approach as we join with 50 other faith congregations in the city (including Muslim, UUC, etc.) Keep up the good work. It is never over...one voice at a time, a candle in the dark. Thanks for your witness to the community.

Loved it... The incarnation, for me, is so central to everything around this time of year, and to the Christian faith in general.
In response to the PeaceSigns article 'Abraham Lincoln and the Mennonites' <http://peace.mennolink.org/cgi-bin/m.pl?a=684>:
Lincoln may not have been aware of the number of Quakers who were slave owners in the Carolinas. John Woolman traveled among Friends and lobbied these Quakers to give up their slaves and worked to get Philadelphia Yearly Meeting to pass a minute opposing slavery. We were not all the saints of Underground Railroad fame. Sorry, Abe.
