A saintly woman said, many hundreds of years ago, that Christ had no other hands but our own, no other mouth but our own, no other feet but our own. We believe Christ has called us to continue his ministry in this world. One of our spiritual ancestors, Menno Simons, described it this way in 1539: "True evangelical faith cannot lie dormant, it clothes the naked, it feeds the hungry, it comforts the sorrowful, it shelters the destitute, it serves those that harm it, it binds up that which is wounded, it has become all things to all men." Nearly 500 years later, we continue to take seriously these words. Jesus has called us to be active in the world, seeking to reconcile it to the dream God has for all creation.
