In 2017, news in the church and around the world has happened fast, and The Mennonite has been there, providing coverage of Anabaptists working together from Charlottesville to Houston to Puerto Rico and beyond. We’ve shared stories of people affected by disasters, of church planters, protests, news from the global church, stories of peacebuilding efforts, church anniversaries and more. And we’ve sought to illuminate through blogs, opinion pieces, feature stories and first-person interviews the many ways Mennonites and Anabaptists are seeking to follow Jesus.
This year alone, TMail has brought you more than 500 original news stories, podcasts, op-eds, recipes, playlists, webinars, Bible studies and prayers, and the list could go on. Each week, TMail shows up in your inbox free of charge, and we want to keep it that way. Through our partnership with Mennonite Education Agency, we’ve also helped publish more than 60 original Spanish-language stories in Meno Acontecer, our monthly Spanish e-zine.
Also this year, our sister organization, Mennonite Disaster Service (MDS), has been at 21 different disaster recovery sites, working alongside local communities in places such as South Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico as they try to rebuild after devastating storms.
Thank you for your continued support of both these important ministries,
