Re: Bishop Oversight

It is interesting how obsessive many conservative Mennonites are about the need for bishop oversight when establishing a new congregation. What is the reason for this? Is this rooted in a biblical basis? Is it really necessary in order to properly found a Christian congregation, or for a congregati...

Re: Trump: A MennoNet Poll

Mennonet is fairly a-political these days. And I hope it stays this way. :) MennoNet's a-politicism mirrors what I've seen among conservative Anabaptists in the last year and a half. My association with conservative Mennonites goes back to the early 90s, and throughout the Clinton, Bush, and Obama ...

Bishop Oversight

I just talked to someone today, who happens to be a lot closer to this thing than I am. Bishop support will not be coming from Meadow Springs.

Re: War Games

It's true that games can be a forum for social interaction, but I think it's at a surface level. Well, I'd say that is nearly entirely dependent on the company Milton Bradley's Battleship, for example, is mostly at a surface level. Well, there may be a submarine. Not sure.

Re: Museum of the Bible

A few more notes on the visit. We went on a Thursday morning and had no trouble booking the tickets two days before. The museum was not crowded at all. During the week appears to be an excellent time to visit. I will also say that the employees of the museum were very friendly and helpful. We got th...

Re: Museum of the Bible

We visited the museum yesterday. I don't have time for a long review, but here are a few quick impressions. It is miles ahead of all the other museums in DC that we visited over a couple of days in terms of technology and the artistic presentation of anything from ancient artifacts to modern data. T...
