Peace witness diminished

Mennonite Church USA is calling for a renewal of peacemaking (#BringThePeace). This is good. The people of MC USA have failed to be peacemakers. Liberals and conservatives did not practice forbearance with each other. Each side knew it was right. Each side insisted on its own way. And we split. Those of us who are still a part of MC USA are just as guilty as those who left the denomination. The peace witness of Mennonites in the United States has been diminished.
