Written in English

75 pages

This special edition of the Mennonite Brethren Herald contains the stories and photographs of the congregations making up the Mennonite Brethren Church in Canada in 1988, one hundred years after the first church was established. According to editor Herb Kopp, "The large majority of MB churches were born under very fragile and frequently insecure settings. Many congregations have struggled long and hard to be self-sufficient and self-sustaining. Each story is a commentary on the grace of God." This anniversary edition includes the life stories of six MB leaders, two women and four men. There is also a brief history of each provincial conference.
