With the 500th anniversary of the Reformation at hand in 2017, the question of how to commemorate it is upon us.

Do we celebrate the Reformers' renewal of the church in light of the gospel? Do we mourn the division of the one, catholic church? Or have events like the globalization of Christianity and the rise of Pentecostalism made the 16th-century debates irrelevant?

Join us as Professor Ephraim Radner and a panel of theologians representing a variety of Christian traditions wrestle through these important questions and more.

Wednesday, January 28, 2015 — 3:30 PM to 5:00 PM EST

Please join the Toronto Mennonite Theological Centre for a special presentation by Mennonite Church Canada Witness Worker, Andrew Suderman as he talks about power in the context of South Africa.

In the process, Suderman will explore how power is understood and embodied and some of the issues that particular forms of power breed.
