Movement & Trouble

Megan M Ramer

We are just starting our journey with Jesus through Mark's gospel, and already there's a pattern to his movement: margins --> centers of power --> get into / cause trouble --> retreat to margins for prayer and rest (and around and around). This causes Pastor Megan to think of a piece of our Mennonite history from Rosemarie Freeney Harding, with the formation of Mennonite House in Atlanta GA as a place of respite for activists and leaders in the black-led southern Freedom Movement of the 1960's. How might this movement pattern of Jesus shape our own lives of discipleship AND how might this bit of Mennonite history inform our discernment as a congregation of our place in God's liberation movements today?
