Those who have visited Brazil come across a word that describes our culture better than any other: jeitinho – a clever bypass, or a way to dodge the system.
Knowing and Living Your Faith, a commentary and study guide on the International Community of Mennonite Brethren (ICOMB) Confession of Faith released in June, is a 130-page booklet prepared by 16 international leaders. All global MB churches are encouraged to use the resource for Bible-intensive study between Sept. 2008–Dec. 2009.
We believe that a confession of faith is very important to the life and witness of Mennonite Brethren congregations around the world. It is so important that we spent three years working with five other Mennonite Brethren to write a global MB confession of faith.
