A presentation on stalking and dating violence.

“Food & Faith: Mennonites Farming Locally and Globally”


Mennonite sociologist Winfield Fretz called farming the ‘sacred vocation.’ Even though fewer and fewer Mennonites are involved in it, we are all dependent on, if not blessed by it. We used to talk together about farming and faith a lot more when more of us were farmers. Maybe it’s time to talk again.

"Where Moth and Rust Destroy: Archives and the Contest over Anabaptist Information"
David Neufeld stands in the grebel atriumArchives set the parameters of what we can know about early Anabaptists. Examination of archives’ own histories shows that, far from neutral repositories of historical evidence, these collections intensified conflict between early Anabaptists and their opponents. The management of information about nonconformists contributed to their repression, while Anabaptists’ documentary response supported their efforts to survive.
