With Gratitude to My Flock and Sanctuary
As I read these words today, I want to reflect on my time with the members of Argentine Mennonite Church and the practical ways you have expressed your faith in Jesus Christ.
There are many things I could share but let me highlight a few.
Firstly, this congregation has been one of the most diverse congregations I have ever come across. AMC has had people who are rich and poor, Caucasian, African American, Hispanic, Asian Indian, educated and not so educated, traditionally Mennonite and completely non-Mennonite, young and old, formally dressed and informally dressed, able bodied and disabled. I can’t think of a category of people that AMC has not been able to welcome. To have diversity in a large congregation is easy. But to have diversity in a small congregation means that anytime you have a handful of people together you have diversity even in that setting. That is what we had here at AMC.
