Description: Participants at the 79th annual Mennonite Church Alberta delegate sessions discovered that Canadian Mennonite editor Tim Miller Dyck is also a preacher. As keynote speaker, Miller Dyck unpacked the theme, "At the crossroads: Promise and peril," pointing out biblical "signposts" for decision-making.Using passages from Deuteronomy 4:1-9, Matthew 4:1-11, and II Timothy 3, he urged churches to obey, remember and teach. Old Testament commandments are read through the lens of Jesus' life and enacted in church communities as they face the future, Miller Dyck said, concluding with the admonition: "Remember to turn to Scripture... be led by the Holy Spirit... and be shaped by the interpretation of your church in your community, because I think those are gifts that God gives us to be faithful in the crossroads of our own lives."Pastor Ken Tie's "scissors" beat Melissa Lesser's "paper? winning him his choice of a book front area conference resource advocate Tracy Brown Ewert.
