A message by Dr. Hilary Scarsella, professor of ethics & director of women and gender studies.
The content and discussion in this message necessarily engages with sexual violence. Much of it will be emotionally and intellectually challenging to engage with.
Three questions/statements posed by Dr. Scarsella for reflection:
1. Anabaptism would do well to center sexual violence in its ethical, community reflections.
2. Anabaptist theology needs to re-conceptualize its idea of peace and sexual violence.
3. Anabaptists need concrete spiritual, theological, social practices that make it possible for us to act in solidarity with survivors.
Message by Rev. John Rempel. John was the first official pastor at MMF (early 1990s to the early '00s). He has written many books and articles, edited the Minister's Manual (Mennonite Church USA), and contributed greatly to shaping Mennonite and Anabaptist culture over the last several decades. This message is adapted from his recently released book, "Recapturing an Enchanted World" (IVP).

Unfortunately, our recording of last week's sermons failed. So, today we're sharing a classic from the archives on the topic of perseverance. This sermon delves into Marvel comics, which is appropriate as Marvel Endgame releases later this month. Enjoy and be edified!
