The Mennonite Scholars and Friends Forum, which takes place annually in conjunction with the American Academy of Religion and Society of Biblical Literature meetings, took place virtually on Friday, 20 November 2020. The Forum this year consisted of a round table conversation on the newly released volume Recovering from the Anabaptist Vision, the first volume in T&T Clark's Studies in Anabaptist Theology and Ethics series managed by our friends at the Institute of Mennonite Studies at Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary. While it was disappointing not to be able to gather in person, the virtual format enabled broader participation and we were delighted to have all the editors and contibutors to the volume present as well as roughly 80 participants. The presentations and Q&A sessions were recorded and we are pleased to make those available online.
In his new book, Who Are Our Enemies and How Do We Love Them?Hyung Jin (Pablo) Kim Sun, current PhD student at Emmanuel College and pastor at Toronto Mennonite New Life Church, invites us into a conversation on God's call to love our enemies.
The Spring 2020 issue of the Conrad Grebel Review is now available online. The issue includes an essay by TMTC Research Fellow Jason Reimer Greig as well as a number of other provocative pieces on the intersection of Anabaptist theology and disability theology.
As one of the affiliated colleges of the Toronto School of Theology (TST), Grebel offers a number of cross-listed courses available to TST students. In winter 2021, Dr. Troy Osborne's course on "Mennonite Tradition in Historical Context" will be offered in a remote format, which will allow students in Toronto and further afield to connect more easily.
To welcome to another academic year the TMTC community gathered virtually for celebration of research. TMTC community members from Toronto and beyond shared about the following completed projects or works in progress:
