Three Strands of Christianity - What I learned from Mennonites
Three Strands of Christianity
(or what I learned from the Mennonites)
Sometimes All is not One
Righteous Old School
Follow the laws or be condemned.
Be righteous and distinct society or else.
Give admonition to those unrighteous around you.
Catholic old school.
Old Mennonite farmers clucking their tongues at short skirts.
Do unto others.
Be innocent but not stupid
Serve your neighbor.
Just say My Name and you are Mine!
Hippy Jesus freak soup kitchen.
Mennonite Central Committee putting in wells.
All have sinned and fall short,
Condemned and Left Behind at any time.
Be tiny but loud
With no doubt and little thought
Struggle is failure.
Mennonite missionary modelling monogamy.
The triangle flows from corner to corner
and all are connected,
the emphasis is different.
Each one says their Way is the only
quote from the others to justify
The diversity lets many in,
each sharp edge turns some away.
