"Supporting SKMB Churches and Camps in making disciples."

Our Saskatchewan History

Chapter 1

Pioneers began the church.

The story of Mennonite Brethren in Saskatchewan is far richer that most of us suspect. They’ve played a key role in the growth of our church across Canada. Of course, they had a significant role opening up the prairies, but they were also leaders on a number of fronts for the church. What few today realize is just how often Saskatchewan Mennonite Brethren played the role of starters for Mennonite Brethren elsewhere in Canada. They were the first to open a Bible school, the first to begin a radio ministry, the first to run a camping program, the first to begin a widespread home missions program, the first to embrace the shift to the use of English in their churches in the Canadian brotherhood. There is a remarkable history with important insights. They shared their wealth of leadership with the entire Mennonite Brethren fellowship.

Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble?

I watch a lot of Major League Baseball; the Toronto Blue Jays are my team. A good number of the Blue Jay players wear crosses and routinely engage in the Catholic practice of ‘crossing’ themselves. Both of these provide some level of testimony that God plays a role in their personal and professional lives. It is common practice for some of these elite ball players to make a gesture of thanks and praise to God when they accomplish a good hit, crossing themselves and raising a hand to the heavens.

SKMB Sabbatical Two

Before I left I wrote about five things we did to help us plan our sabbatical to ensure our family got the most out of it. Now on the other side of our sabbatical, I want to share four lessons I learned about sabbaticals that I hope will help you prepare if you are considering one in the future.
