Join us for the PNMC Annual Meeting in Boise, ID!

“Come walk with us, the journey is long” are words from a South African hymn that many of us sing. It is also the calling of Mennonite Church USA and PNMC as we move into the Journey Forward process as a gathered church.

But it’s not just an invitation to gather together as a church, it’s also an invitation to move out into God’s future for the world as Christ’s witnesses. It’s an […]

The Cost of Discipleship

The Mennonite, Inc., welcomes original submissions for the June 2018 issue focusing on Costly Discipleship.   When Jesus called people to follow him, he told them to “count the cost” (Luke 14:25-33), and when foretelling his death and resurrection, he told his disciples, “If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me” (Mark 8:34). The term “costly” can have a different meaning for people from different contexts. Someone in a privileged position may choose to face a cost out of a commitment to their faith. A person who is oppressed […]
