Responding to salvation with young adults

VIEWS: 5 PAGES: 3

Gareth Brandt, professor of practical theology at Columbia Bible College, Abbotsford, B.C., was the speaker for the weekend. Speaking on "Radical revolution: The Anabaptist movement of the 16th century," he explained how the Anabaptist movement was really a young people's movement, since most of those involved were dead by the age of 30. He took par- ticipants through many of the early lead- ers and prominent figures: Ulrich Zwingli and Conrad Grebel in Zurich, Hans Denck in Nuremburg, Helena of Freyburg, and Menno Simons in Witmarsum. At the end, Brandt challenged participants with the question: "How do we respond to our salvation?"
