The 150th anniversary of the Mennonite Brethren Church provides an opportunity to reflect critically about the journey they have travelled as well as the path they are on now. Since their beginning on January 6, 1860, the recurring themes of identity and mission emerge in their attempts to articulate the centre that holds Mennonite Brethren together. This collection of papers facilitates reflection and prompts further conversation about the issues facing Mennonite Brethren as they seek to be people of God and take part in God's mission in the world.
