  • #WeAreMenno: Mennonites and Muslims – Mennonite Church USA
    we were doing life Now that I think of it maybe my understanding from three and a half decades ago is correct Fatima and George weren t substantively different from me my mom and dad at all What makes this WeAreMenno material For me the core of being Mennonite is that we are all apprentices of Jesus our nonviolent King We are learning from him how to be human something he modeled fully and perfectly for us His Holy Spirit reproduces his very life in us and expresses it through us Most North Americans are both fearful of and ignorant concerning Muslims Whenever I realize that I m afraid of something or someone it s a signal to me that I have an opportunity to let the love of Jesus grow in my life Love contains no element of fear in itself but instead the closer it gets to full strength Jesus love powerfully expels fear Fearfulness is a sign there s still room to grow in Jesus love 1 John 4 18 There is an industry in our nation a terror lobby if you will drawing its ever increasing ever better entrenched political and economic power from fear Anti Muslim bigotry and an endless war waged in an increasingly cowardly manner are both demonic in origin The Great Good News is that Jesus has appeared to destroy the devil s work 1 John 3 8 But he needs your life and mine our hands voices and hearts to do this part of his work How can you participate in what Jesus is doing Here s a possible starting place Find some Muslim neighbors and friends to share life with Don t start a program or schedule an event just initiate a friendship Start by openly admitting your own ignorance Position yourself as a learner Ask them to describe how a core practice like daily prayer at set times affects their schedule and enriches their life Or ask your Muslim friend what their favorite sura verse in the Koran is and what it means to them Recognize that like Mennonites Muslims have different intensities of faith and don t put the pressure on your friend of being a model Muslim or of representing their faith any more than you could carry that weight for Jesus Christians or Mennonites Like Christians not all Muslims have identical beliefs or practices Talk about stuff that very much is but doesn t feel spiritual paying bills the joy of life as an unmarried adult balancing tasks and relationships helping kids make wiser choices caring for aging parents Once you ve earned their trust your Muslim friend may share questions they have about Christianity or Mennonites Read the Koran Jesus who Muslims call Isa is important in Islam Exchange hospitality Both Mennonites and Muslims are big on interwoven families We both put energy into maintaining a countercultural faith position and transmitting that to the next generation And we both love to eat filling plates with

  • #WeAreMenno: Just Like Captain America – Mennonite Church USA
    in this world They ll form opinions and take action when they read of a man standing up in a church and shooting people They ll have to figure out what to think about different religions cows being given extra hormones abortion and what to do about the woman holding a hungry sign on the street corner They ll face moments of ethical dilemma whether or not to report their colleague who forged the signature of a client or what if they can just keep the damaged bag of Doritos while stocking shelves at Walmart They ll have to decide just how much sugar to consume in a day and they ll have to face the horrid reality that slavery is still real in the world and that it s closer than those history books ever told us It s actually so close they ll realize that we re all perpetuating it Are there ways to nurture a child s spiritual development so they are prepared for the grit and gore of life and for the holiness and beauty There are a lot of nitty gritty details about literacy acquisition and study upon study about a child s physical development but not a whole lot of research has been done about their spiritual development Not too many parents are walking around concerned that their child is spiritually delayed I suppose it s closely related in a lot of ways to social and emotional development which is gaining more attention and emphasis at least in some educational circles And yet I wonder if there is not more to spiritual development than learning one s emotions and how to interact with others appropriately What is that difference What is spirituality When and how does it develop I don t have the answers to my questions just some hunches But I want to enter into this conversation with intentionality As I consider what I d like to teach my own daughter this is what I have come up with Love God people and yourself This means choosing to live in a way that does not hurt others or yourself Give grace even to people that hurt other people because guess what that s everyone Connect compassionately and empathize Grace however does not equal permissiveness Work to keep others from hurting people too Work for justice How do we nurture these concepts in our children How do we build the foundation I have a few ideas Like Jesus did tell them stories Let them express themselves through art Slow down Connect with them Connect them with nature Connect them with other people especially people who may look or act quite different from them Mostly find what is alive in them and ways that nurture that And for me I ll also go figure out who Captain America is so that I can engage more meaningfully the next time he pops up when talking with a child Share this Facebook Twitter Email Posted in WeAreMenno
