  • Discernment Group on sexual abuse and the church ends its work – Mennonite Church USA
    the work of the DG news updates on the work of the DG and a list of resources on sexual abuse commissioning Dr Rachel Waltner Goossen to conduct research that accurately documented the scope of John Howard Yoder s sexual abuse and the church s response to it the results were published in Mennonite Quarterly Review in January 2015 writing the Churchwide Statement on Sexual Abuse passed by the delegate body in Kansas City Missouri on July 3 2015 creating the Care and Prevention fund in March 2015 organizing a Service of Lament and Hope and the Wailing Wall at Mennonite Church USA s biennial convention in Kansas City in July 2015 In the group s penultimate meeting in September members discussed the disbursement of the Care and Prevention fund Since March 2015 the Discernment Group has been accepting contributions to this fund whose purpose according to Mennonite Church USA Executive Director Ervin Stutzman was threefold to recompense at least in some small measure the material costs that persons victimized by Yoder or another credentialed leader of Mennonite Church USA undertook on their road to healing to provide tangible care for persons who have experienced sexual abuse and to assist in prevention of sexual abuse The Care and Prevention Fund received nearly 61 000 in contributions said Stutzman Of this amount approximately 42 000 will go to victims of sexual abuse and the remaining 19 000 will be divided among Sister Care a ministry of Mennonite Women USA that provides tangible healing and care for women who have experienced loss or sexual abuse both in the U S and beyond the Women in Leadership Project of Mennonite Church USA which seeks to undo the systems patterns within the church that devalue or silence women including abuse victims Dove s Nest a church organization that works with ecumenical faith communities to keep children and youth safe from abuse The Mennonite Church USA Executive Board EB recognized the Discernment Group members and passed a motion thanking them for their work at the board s Sept 17 19 meetings While the work of helping all members find healing for experiences of sexual abuse is an ongoing ministry for the whole church we commend the committee for courageously documenting this painful chapter of the church s recent history taking seriously the devastating pain of those victimized by John Howard Yoder and leading the church to adopt practices that will contribute to the safety of our members from all manner of sexual abuse the EB statement said At its September meetings the EB decided that together with Mennonite Education Agency MEA it would appoint a new group to carry forward the work of education and prevention of sexual abuse across Mennonite Church USA and its institutions The Churchwide Statement on Sexual Abuse will be the basis for this new group s work The statement itself of course will not be sufficient said Stutzman We must invest both time and money into the effort to put

  • Hope for the Future: What does inaction reveal about us? – Mennonite Church USA
    together and discover connection to me was an obvious reminder that I did not belong For many years following the transition from Canada to the U S as I attended Bethany Christian High School and later Goshen College I learned to navigate the youth conventions potlucks hymn sings and relief sales I learned the theology of peace and value of community and eventually married a Mennonite woman I can now play the Mennonite game a little more easily but more importantly I have forged my own Mennonite identity separate of but respectful to the rich ethnic heritage of my Swiss German compatriots Like many transitions and transformations there was a lot of doubt questioning and pain before I could find a way forward After just a few interactions at Hope for the Future I began to see similar strands in others stories as we weaved together an elaborate tapestry of the experience of people of color within the church Every attendee had frustrations fears and some even outright fury at the role that the body of Christ has played in the history of the U S During one presentation by MCC Anti Oppression Coordinator Ewuare Osayande I was disgusted to learn the details of the church s blatant oppressive and dehumanizing role that set the stage for the next half century of systematic racism both in secular institutions and the church itself The Mennonite Church I have known has not been a body of faith that intentionally seeks to subjugate or disenfranchise people of color On the contrary I believe that significant strides have been made in identifying and beginning to dismantle the oppressive structures and attitudes that have dominated the history of our country Hope for the Future has itself become a means to understand and address the vestiges of a morally corrupt system The Mennonite church has a role to play in our larger culture as well as tackling the remnants of the destructive attitudes and expectations the Church has historically espoused Much of the conference was focused on race analysis and history of race relations in the Mennonite Church As we neared the conclusion of the conference we as a group attempted to come up with some proposals for tangible strategies policies and best practices that could be implemented across Mennonite agencies and institutions A part of this discussion my working group proposed the development of an internal or inter agency department to be tasked with the oversight and management of intercultural competency development and anti racism practices in Mennonite organizations This department would encompass addressing intercultural issues in hiring job descriptions professional development and performance reviews Clearly it is no small task to generate a department where none has existed There are very real concerns regarding how to implement this and in particular how to do so in consideration of finite resources I do not at all mean to minimize this reality Let us also examine however how our distribution of resources reflects our priorities as
