Professor Jeremy Bergen to speak in Manitoba

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

Jeremy BergenGrebel Professor Jeremy Bergen is the Resource Person for Mennonite Church Manitoba's Fall Leadership Seminar on October 26th, 2012. Speaking about “The Holy Spirit in the Anabaptist-Mennonite Story,” this Religious Studies and Theology professor will to talk about how we, in contemporary churches, understand our identity as Anabaptists. 

"I want to argue against the idea that the presence of the Spirit in our story means that we’ve got it right and others have it wrong," explains Bergen. "The Spirit works in more complicated ways.  I claim that Anabaptism should be understood primarily as a reform movement within the wider church. This reminds us that we believe we have something to say to other Christians, and need to nurture those relationships.  But we also need to ask what we might learn from them. Furthermore, as a reform movement, we should also examine ourselves and consider where reform and renewal might be needed in our own churches."
