Welcome to the May issue of PeaceSigns! This issue is packed with great articles from longtime and new contributors and covers a lot of ground. I believe you'll find plenty to ponder and new ideas to consider this month.
Regular contributors Tom Beutel and Rachelle Lyndaker Schlabach have pieces this month. I'm always grateful to see their bylines.
Berry Freisen and Keith Lyndaker Schlabach have been appearing in these pages for a few months and we're glad to have them back.
And this month we have two new contributors. I met Sherah-Leigh Gerber while on a trip to Ohio earlier this year. She works for Ohio Mennonite Conference and is helping develop a new model of how conferences can engage with peace and justice. It's great to have her in PeaceSigns.
We also welcome Jennifer Davis Sensenig, pastor of Community Mennonite Church in Harrisonburg, VA. Her piece on how to plan a Palm Sunday parade may inspire you and your congregation to hit the streets next year! This kind of event takes planning, so begin preparing now for an event in the Spring.
