About half of the M.B. cohort met in Buhl France along with the European Mennonites in their annual meeting. They discussed several critical issues that could set the stage for greater faithfulness in the future. David also presented a report on the Global Education Network event in July to the larger Mennonite leaders gathering. This group has issued a statement concerning the Mennonite response to refugees coming to Europe. ICOMB has added its weight of support to the statement. It can be viewed on our website.
