  1. I know this is long after you’ve posted this but I’m enjoying having something to listen to while I work!
    Coming from a non-anabaptist setting and mingling for many years among the greater anabaptist world, I could very much relate to the topic! I think one of the biggest struggles we had was not the traditions -because many of them we had come to the same conclusion on, ourselves- but was the fact that everyone in these cultures thinks so alike. And it made us wonder if they think and act the same because they all want to and believe that way, or because the church was telling them to. Our issue was not the tradition itself, but how they believe in/practice the tradition, if that makes any sense. Great topic and I enjoyed the discussion!
