#8 - Historical Mennonite Heritage Runs Deep: Faith Lessons ft. Paul & Louise Thiessen (Parents of Conf. Minister, Rob Thiessen)

BCMB Pastor to Pastor Podcast

And I thought, if I would have had a vision, it would have been much, much too small. God had a much better vision for me than I could have imagined since my background was so troublesome that I could not envision big things. ~ Paul Thiessen We talk about being Mennonite Brethren as a denomination and church family, but there are still a number of us around who identify also with the personal heritage that comes from being part of a family that immigrated here as Mennonites from other countries. Sometimes it is easier to understand a denomination once you understand something about its roots. When was the last time you sat down with an individual from an older generation who remembers what it was like to immigrate here to Canada as a Mennonite? Maybe you're an immigrant yourself, and can identify with some of the experiences that early Mennonite families had here. Join Rob and his parents as they discuss how God shows up amidst war, persecution, and trials of life. Follow their journey as they reached into their new community through Willingdon Church.
