Bethany Asks "Can I Get a Witness?" in Columbus

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The Bethany community presented a variety of events at Annual Conference centered around the theme of witnessing, reflecting both the message of 1 John 1:1-2 and the Conference theme,
"Live as Courageous Disciples."

Many visitors to the Bethany exhibit added their voices to the conversation by writing responses to questions about discipleship:
     "Through what scripture text has Jesus been calling you to a deeper discipleship?"    - Nancy Heishman, Moderator
     "My witness is seen, heard, and felt when I . . ."    - Jeff Carter, President of Bethany Seminary

Read the responses shared by Brethren sisters and brothers!

MonicaWhen my vocational calling led me to consider a seminary education, I visited Bethany out of a sense of Brethren obligation. Growing up in a Brethren family and congregation, attending a Brethren college, and then participating in several years of Brethren Volunteer Service, I felt a strong commitment to Brethren institutions. However, I felt ready to experience a different faith community for graduate study. I made plans to attend an urban Chicago seminary, but chose to visit Bethany to know that I had considered it as an option.
