Young adult Bible curriculum celebrates diversity

“Diversity: God’s Design” is a new multimedia study from Mennonite Church U.S.A. that calls young adults to celebrate the intentional diversity of God’s creation. The free, four-week curriculum uses biblical reflections to introduce the importance of intercultural competency as part of Christian growth and formation. “This curriculum will become increasingly relevant as denominations such as ours seek to be more diverse and inclusive in sharing the good news,” said Glen Guyton, executive director of MC U.S.A.

Joint conference to focus on leading in hope through difficult times

ELKHART, IND.—What can we learn from leaders who were formed “in the wilderness” for the struggles we face today? This question is central to the theme of an upcoming conference for pastors and faith formation leaders of all Christian denominations. Titled “Formed in the Wilderness, Leading in Hope,” the conference will be held in person on the campus of Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary (AMBS) Feb. 21-24, with livestreaming and Zoom connections also available for those at a distance.
