The idea that Mennonites moved across the Russian Empire as settlers is not new. However, recognition that Mennonites frequently colonized land belonging to Muslims has rarely been incorporated into historical analysis.

Ever wonder what life will be like after you graduate?
We live in a world of permanent tensions and contrasts: poverty and wealth, terror and beauty, political strife, warfare and hope for peace. How shall we sing, pray and live in such times? The ancient psalms are, as they have been in every age, profound sources of insight and spirituality in response to this question. By tracing the images and rhythms of lament and doxology in the Psalter, we encounter the mystery of God and the full stretch of humanity. How can Christians pray the Psalms with Jesus today?
