From June 5 to 7, MCI (Mennonite Collegiate Institute) will celebrate 125 years in Gretna, Man., by throwing a party. Given who we are, we are likely to sing a few songs. We will pitch a tent, prepare a feast and tell stories. We will remember classes, athletic fields and musical stages, quonsets and halls, roommates and friends, teachers and parents, road trips and school trips. We will give praise to God who set us here to teach and to learn. We will tell our stories to our children so that they continue to take their places among the living, among those who would be faithful to the God who is faithful. We will thank God for 125 years at MCI and ask God to bless and sustain all the wonderful years yet to come. To learn more, visit www.mciblues.net and follow the “About MCI” link.
