On a cold autumn morning in mid-October in the board room at the Toronto School of Theology (TST), students associated with the Toronto Mennonite Theological Centre (TMTC) had the opportunity to converse with theologians Joan and Oliver O’Donovan. The topic of conversation was the legacy of TMTC’s founding director, A. James Reimer, and his posthumously published book Toward an Anabaptist Political Theology(Cascade, 2014).
On Thursday, September 14th TMTC Associate Layton Friesensuccessfully defended his doctoral thesis entitled "Unity in Difference: Hans Urs von Balthasar's Christology as a Resource for a Mennonite Theology of Peace."
