As a member of the Mennonite Brethren community, a few things are essential to living out our faith. Firstly, we must prioritize our relationship with God above all else. This…
The National Faith and Life Team (NFLT) is tasked with providing resources related to the MB Confession of Faith. These resources are to clarify our Confession of Faith, but the larger goal is to encourage greater spiritual health and theology in our MB family.
Our Board was able to meet in-person for two days in BC in October 2022. There was great appreciation for the value in being able to work in-person. Our goal…
Our hearts are torn by events in many places in our world today but especially in Ukraine and Afghanistan. The eyes of the world turn to Ukraine as Russian forces…
Because we worship the Prince of Peace and are called to be Peacemakers, we care deeply about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Because we are called to identify with Christian brothers and sisters in Ukraine, and to love our Ukrainian neighbours there, we are called to pray. And finally, because violence often escalates to draw in more nations and particularly impact the vulnerable and disadvantaged, we believe this is an urgent moment for Christians the world over to pray.
I struggle to hear God’s voice sometimes, do you? Perhaps it’s because I don’t slow down long enough, or I am distracted by other things, or maybe I am hearing it but choose not to acknowledge it.
We are a little over 500 years since the last reformation. Could it be that God is again at work through the power of his Spirit, breaking through our outer shell to reveal a new work to be done? If this is the case, then what is this new work?
“I ask that CCMBC consider participating in the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity in 2023 and beyond.” – Rick Block, Saskatoon, SK.

I do have hope. And I have experienced the power of prayer and have seen prayers answered time and time again. Despite the dark days we share in January, I know that better days are ahead. God’s blessings are abundant.
Our son starts university in a few days. I struggle to describe the potpourri of feelings that blossom within me when I consider this fact. For one thing, I am very proud of what he has accomplished to reach this landmark; then, I am concerned about how he will navigate this change of course. Will he flourish in this new stage of (online) learning or be frustrated and overcome by the workload and lowered level of accountability? How can I, his father, guide him through this?
Today the word reconciliation doesn’t so much bring me hope as it does hurt. Over the summer, we have awoken to numerous gruesome discoveries on the grounds of former Canadian residential schools. How can we as a country reconcile hundreds of years of inflicting pain and suffering on the Indigenous people…
Randy Friesen is a dear brother and friend who has encouraged us, inspired us and taught us much of what it means to walk through trials with humility and grace. We bless him, Marjorie and his family as they enter a season of rest and reflection. We are eager to see what the Lord has in store and pray that God will continue to use him mightily among us.
