The Mennonite, Inc., invites your original submissions for our August 2020 print magazine issue and corresponding online content focusing on Why I am an Anabaptist.
Description of the theme:
The name “Anabaptist” (literally “baptized again”) comes from a movement that emerged in 16th-century Europe. Today, some 2 million Christians around the world identify as Anabaptists. In the United States, a growing number of Christians who are not part of Mennonite-related churches or denominations are identifying as Anabaptist. People define and live out their Anabaptist beliefs in different ways. We are interested in hearing stories of people who identify as Anabaptist and why they do so.
Submissions may consider one of the following prompts/questions, among others:
Submissions are due to Editor@TheMennonite.org no later than July 3.

Please note we are committed to anti-oppression reviews as part of our editorial process. When developing your submission, please review our updated anti-oppression guidelines as well as our updated editorial guidelines.
