Dr. Paul Martens (TH.M, Regent; PhD Notre Dame), Associate Professor of Religion (Ethics) at Baylor University, one-time Residence Coordinator of the Menno Simons Centre with his wife Candace in the 1990s, returned to speak on the Christological explorations of the Anabaptist-Mennonite tradition. Dualistic ideas in The Schleitheim Confession (1527) led to separationist tendencies in our heritage. The prologue in the first chapter of the Gospel of John provides a challenge for us to appreciate the pervasive goodness of Christ in all of nature, including us. Are we equally willing to resist evil structures that perpetuate social and economic evils as we are against physical violence? [KH]
