Conversation 2: Racial Harm and Harmony Among Mennonites
Tuesday, October 26, 2021, 8 PM ET
North American Mennonites from racial minorities have not always been fully embraced by their Mennonite brothers and sisters. In this session, Tobin Miller Shearer, African-American Studies Director at University of Montana, will provide context on some historic documents that show attempts and failures at racial reconciliation. Also, hear from John Powell about the Minority Ministries Council formed in 1969 to represent Mennonites of color in the (old) Mennonite Church and his continued work for racial justice. John is a former Mennonite pastor and administrator, and a civil rights activist. In break-out groups with a facilitator, discuss how Anabaptists can play a meaningful part in the hard work of racial justice and reconciliation.

Conversation 3: Remaining Community-Minded in an Individualistic Culture
Tuesday, November 9, 2021, 8 pm ET
In the past, many North-American Anabaptists lived in set-apart communities that were more focused on the common good than people in the dominant individualistic culture. This session explores historic examples of great things Anabaptists accomplished by working together. Also, hear from a panel of Anabaptists who think and act from a community mindset. In break-out groups with a facilitator, discuss ways to live counter-culturally as you build community.
