Madeline writes: "I believe I contribute in this position by listening and discerning what the Holy Spirit is trying to do with our Mennonite Church. I feel that there is an ongoing transformation that we are going through as we discern that we are a body with members of many different origins and backgrounds. I feel that we are recognizing this as we continue to be a missional church."
