The Mennonite, Inc., invites your original submissions for our June 2020 print magazine issue and corresponding online content focusing on Community in the face of COVID-19.
Description of the theme:
Jesus called his disciples to love one another (John 13:35), and he reiterated the biblical command to love our neighbors as ourselves (Matthew 22:39; Mark 12:31). A community of Jesus followers formed to live out virtues of compassion, mercy, grace, generosity, peace, justice and joy. Now we all face a pandemic during which we are simultaneously practicing social distancing and newly realizing how interconnected we all are as COVID-19 causes suffering across the world, no matter who you are. In a time of isolation, how can we be community together?
