Anabaptist martyrdom didn’t end in the 16th century. The Bearing Witness stories project collects stories of people in the Anabaptist community of faith who willingly suffered, died or experienced significant deprivation for their commitment to Christ. Stories include MCC worker Glenn Lapp (who was killed in Afghanistan) and the Mennonite Brethren church community in Istmina, Colombia, (which continued to meet in homes despite prohibitions against non-Catholic worship). The project’s goals are to inspire faithfulness in the church, to cultivate a sense of unity in the global church body, and to honour the voices and experiences of Christians embody the lifestyle Jesus taught in the Sermon on the Mount. In true wiki fashion, submissions are welcome.
