In Part — the magazine of the Brethren in Christ Church in the U.S. — has kicked off a four-part series titled “We Believe,” focusing on the four theological traditions that have shaped and continue to shape the Brethren in Christ Church.
The first installment in the series, the winter 2012 issue, focuses on Anabaptism. Specifically, the issue focuses on how Anabaptism represents “Jesus among us.” The issue tackles this theological tradition from a number of angles: historical, theological, practical/pastoral, autobiographical.
Be sure to check out Woody Dalton’s take on how Anabaptism influences his congregation’s attempt to build a multicultural and multiracial church; Harriet Sider Bicksler’s personal story of her journey as a peacemaker; Kurt Willems’ essay on Anabaptism and 21st century ministry; and Jay Johnson’s description of what Anabaptism shares with the U.S. Civil Rights Movement.
Also be sure to check out this interesting timeline that charts Anabaptism’s influence on the Brethren in Christ throughout their history.
