TMTC Senior Fellow, Lydia Neufeld Harder, has recently published The Challenge is in the Naming: A Theological Journey, which is now available from CMU Press and/or Wipf and Stock. The volume is built around a collection of previously published essays over the course of thirty years and is supplemented by current reflections and personal narratives that place these essays into a broader and engaging theological journey. Former TMTC PhD graduates, Suzanne Guenther Loewen and Kimberly Penner, describe this collection as "a rich blending of personal, church, and academic narratives and contexts. . . . [that] has the potential to become a pivotal resource for the next generation of Mennonite theologians, scholars, and pastors."
The eighth iteration of the Toronto Mennonite Theological Centre’s (TMTC) biennial graduate student conference, which featured twenty-two student presenters from fifteen different institutions across North America, impressed with both the range and quality of the theological conversations it generated.
We are pleased to announce the appointment of Sarah K. Johnson as a Visiting Fellow at TMTC! Sarah is currently a PhD candidate at the University of Notre Dame and is writing a dissertation at the intersection of liturgical studies and sociology of religion investigating the ongoing roles of Christian ritual in increasingly nonreligious and religiously diverse social contexts. Sarah is also a member of the editorial team for the new worship and song collection, entitled Voices Together, that is intended to serve Mennonite congregations in Canada and the United States. We will have occasion to welcome Sarah formally at our annual Welcome Dinner in the Fall but, in the meantime, welcome to the TMTC community, Sarah!
