An Anabaptist Concept of the Holy Spirit

Session #10 on Sunday, October 28, 2012

This is a very important subject because at various times in our history, people have grabbed a hold of concepts of God’s work in their life that have basically not turned out what they thought it was going to be.

Whatever Happened to the Humility Motif? – John D. Martin

Session #13 on Sunday, November 20, 2011

Bro. John D. Martin of Shippensburg, PA

My burden for these meetings for the six years we’ve had them now, is that our people would understand the unique concepts that have made our people what they are, and would not so quickly disregard those for something else. Now tonight, we’re going to speak about the humility motif and what happened to it.

The Kingdom Of God In Practice – John D. Martin

Session #18 on Sunday, March 14, 2010

Bro. John D. Martin of Shippensburg, PA

Humility has been a prominent theme of our people, so contrary to the world. It is the mind of Christ.

Repairing The Walls of Our Homes – Panel Discussion

Session #15 on Sunday, March 14, 2010

Panel Discussion moderated by Bro. Jerry Hoover of Dover, OH
The panelists in this discussion were Bros. John D. Martin, Nathan Overholt, Matthias Overholt, Chester Weaver, David Graber, Donnie Swartzentruber & Ed Kline.

The subject being discussed centers around the retention of youth in our churches. This illustration from Bro. Jerry Hoover sums up at least part of the concerns discussed.

In our farms we have John Deere tractors, we have horses, we have Powerstroke diesels. (What if) consistently through the last 30-40 years, somewhere between 25% and 50% of the John Deere tractors and the Powerstroke pickups, and the horses would somehow just disappear off your farms? There would be people coming out of the woodwork trying to figure out where they’re going, and what’s happening. But alas, there’s been a silence. And one is (left) wondering where the prophetic voice is at.

The Kingdom of God in Perspective – John D. Martin

Session #8 on Saturday, March 13, 2010

Bro. John D. Martin of Shippensburg, PA

What I’m trying to say to you, is that this problem with the Kingdom did not just begin in our generation, and it did not just begin with the Reformation. It began way back somewhere in early church history; that the whole concept of the Kingdom of God was totally lost and replaced by an emphasis on “me”.
