What did it mean for Mennonites to rapidly expand the availability and affordability of butter, milk, and cheese in local markets in northern Mexico and eastern Bolivia?

Aging and Spirituality: Finding courage and resilience

June 13 and 14, 2019, 10 AM–4PM

We can find ourselves in new territory where much is unknown as we face challenges and difficulties in illness, in the aging process, and in dying. In the same way the grit inside an oyster transforms into a pearl, we wonder if our fear and frustration can be transformed into something just as beautiful in us.

You are invited to a time of learning, reflection, and self-care.
