“The strong Anabaptist emphasis on discipleship has led to a warm fellowship among the Church of God in Christ, Mennonite congregations and a gentleness in human relations which makes visitors feel unusually welcome among them.”
– page 228, An Introduction to Mennonite History, Cornelius J. Dyck, editor © 1967 by Herald Press.
It was many years ago when I first read the above quote and it gave me the extra courage I needed to first set foot inside the door of a congregation of the Church of God in Christ, Mennonite. I found it to be exactly as described above.
Now we have been members for many years and are no longer total strangers when we visit another congregation. We are leaving today to visit relatives in south-eastern Saskatchewan and tomorrow morning we will attend the worship service at the Sinclair, Manitoba congregation, the Lord willing.
