My Personal Faith Journey
Mennonite Church
Ephrata, PA
My parents were members of The Mennonite Church in Ephrata, Pennsylvania. I was baptized into the church by pouring at the age of 14. Both of my parents wore the plain garb which was required in those days. The men wore coats much like the Nehru jacket with no collar and the women wore a cape and prayer head covering. By the time I became a member of the church, rules were more lenient for men, but not for women. I never wore the plain garb. My dad put it away in the late 1950's. Today very few in that church wear plain clothing. The Mennonites came out of the Anabaptist movement in the 16th century. Menno Simons, who was once a priest in the Catholic Church in Holland is accepted as their founder. They place a great deal of importance on adult baptism (by pouring), non-resistance, and simple living. The Mennonites have always had an episcopal type of governance where the churches in a particular district are governed by a bishop. In more recent years, the bishops have relinquished much of their power and their is a de facto congregational type of governance in place. Church of the Brethren

Warm, friendly people sharing with others the joy
and confidence they have in Jesus Christ.
Grace Brethren churches were born with a passion to see people really live Christianity every day. Not just on Sundays, but every day!
When Alexander Mack and those with the same convictions began the first GBC in Germany in 1708, they applauded the Reformation, but also cheered for more. They wanted even more of a return to the Scriptures.
They wanted more of an emphasis on personal salvation and the public identification of believers with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and their work of grace in salvation. They also wanted a return to the biblical command to be baptized as a symbol of one's identification with Christ.
With a belief in the integrity of God's Word, they searched the Bible for principles for daily living. "If the Bible teaches it, then let's do it!" was their goal.
Today, several hundred Grace Brethren congregations seek to have that same conservative stance in theology while being progressive in method and love. Sundays and everyday.
Love With Action
Sunday is for us a very important day as we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Grace Brethren churches emphasize the sharing of the Good News of Jesus Christ and the building up of believers in our services of praise ad worship, and find warm fellowship in Bible teaching classes.

photo by Denisse Villalba George Keeler, chair of the Communications Department and professor of journalism, has been the La Verne Magazine adviser for the past 18 years. He graduated from ULV in 1977 with degrees in music and journalism. Keeler took a sabbatical in spring and he took some time to write a history of the American Armenian International College (AAIC).

George Keeler's profession is journalism, and journalists are story tellers. He saw his sabbatical in the spring of 2000 as a chance to tell stories as well as a chance to gather information to be able to tell stories in the future.
Although his sabbatical did not begin as he had planned, Keeler returned to the University of La Verne with an abundance of information and great stories to tell.
The first half of his sabbatical was spent on campus. Last spring the Communications Department was petitioning for more space on campus and as head of the department, Keeler worked through March trying to tie up loose ends.
From the end of March through May, Keeler was in bed with double pneumonia. The illness was not responding to any of the antibiotics his doctor prescribed, and eventually he was making daily trips to his doctors' office for a shot and a chest X-ray. He said he has never been that sick before and said that it was a drag.

Grace Pleasant Valley Progressive Knob Creek ... Vernon Origin of the Brethren Alexander Mack founded the group, in August 1708, Schwarzenau, Wittgenstein province, Germany. Mack and a small group of followers gathered on the banks of the River Eder and cast lots to select one of their members who would baaptize Mack. After that ceremony, Mack baptized the others by trine immersion which involved total immersion three times face forward in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. All baptized members of the Church of the Brethren have been baptized this way. Because the form of baptism was distinctive, they were often called the Tunkers in Germany. In America the German letter T was understood to be a D and these individuals became Dunkers or Dunkards. The Brethern decided to emigrate to America in 1719, arriving in Philadelphia and settling in Germantown, a few miles outside Philadelphia. Gradually the Brethren migrated westward and southward to Maryland, Virginia and the Carolinas in the pre-Revolutionary days. They journied through the Shenandoah and Roanoke valleys to Tennessee and Alabama. Evidence indicates that Brethren were in the State of Franklin as early as May 1780 and where Indian attacks were common. Some of the men killed by Indians were confirmed to be Brethren in a note in the Knoxville Gazette, April 10, 1794.

'Origin of the Church of The Brethren'
The organization which was to become the Church of The Brethren came into being in l708 at Schwarzenau, Germany, in the valley of the Eder River with an initial membership of eight-three married couples and two unmarried members. Their resolve to start a new church was a part of the pietistic movement against a highly organized state church which they believed did not set a high enough value upon the individual and which often suppressed the rights of the individual conscience. Those eight persons examined carefully the other churches growing out of the pietistic movement and found all of them falling short of bringing the individual, unhampered by restrictive creeds, into personal contact with the whole teaching of the New Testament, and with Jesus Christ. They felt therefore, that a new church should be organized. Accordingly, one of the eight baptized by trine immersion their recognized leader, Alexander Mack, and he in turn administered baptism to the other seven. In this manner and for this reason, the Church of The Brethren was born. The Brethren began migrating to America in l7l9, and by l729 most of them had migrated to this land of freedom and liberty. The first church organized in the early colonies, was at Germantown, Pennsylvania on Christmas day, l723. Their doctrines included plain and unadorned dress for both women and men; wearing of the covering during worship and prayer by the women; trine immersion; washing of the feet and bestowal of salutatory kiss as a part of the communion service. They also believed it was wrong to go to law for collection of debts, and persons practicing law were not admitted to membership. Their church houses were of the simplest type of construction and for the most part the interiors were also very plain and unadorned.

Church of the Brethren Basic History Germans who had been influenced by both Pietism and Anabaptism founded this denomination in 1708 in the town of Schwarzenau, Germany. One of the founders was Alexander Mack, a miller. Despite threat of prosecution, five men and three women gathered at the Eder River for baptism, an illegal act since all had been baptized as infants. They understood baptism as an outward symbol of their new faith and as a commitment to living that faith in community. This new group simply called themselves Brethren. Though the early Brethren shared many beliefs with other Protestants, issues which separated them from the state churches included discipleship and obedience, reinstitution of the New Testament church, church discipline, biblicism, and nonresistance.

The Germans Come to North America
Motives for German Migration. Over 100,000 Germans migrated to the English colonies in North America. Most of them settled in Pennsylvania. Others settled in New York, Maryland, Virginia, the Carolinas, and Georgia. They formed the largest non-English-speaking community in colonial North America. Why did so many Germans migrate to North America? During the 1600s and 1700s, wars ravaged Germany. Marching armies trampled down fields of grain, stole cattle, and burned down farmsteads. In their wake, famines spread over the land. Taxes, levied to pay for the war, added to the people's plight. Religious disputes also drove people to leave their homes. In Europe the rulers chose what church they wanted in their lands. Many pious Germans of strong convictions found this hard to bear. North America, especially Pennsylvania, offered them religious freedom. The First Mennonites Come to Pennsylvania.

Prof. Dekar, Young Center Fellow, is researching the relationship between the Fellowship of Reconciliation (FOR) and the Historic Peace Churches (Brethren, Mennonite, Friends). During World War I, networking between the FOR and the Historic Peace Churches launched the modern peace movement in the United States. Since then, the relationship has helped secure the rights of conscientious objectors in times of war, and the relief of innocent victims in the aftermath of war. Dr. Dekar is currently the Niswonger Professor of Evangelism and Mission, at Memphis Theological Seminary and the author of Healing of the Nations (1993).

History of the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches The Brethren Church began with a very small group of people who wanted to be Bible believing Christians who would follow the Scriptures in simple faith and obedience. The protestant reformation of the 1500-1600's inspired by Martin Luther, John Calvin and others started the ball rolling. The Bible once again was given its rightful place. Biblical doctrines and good theology were taught. But barren orthodoxy and cold indifference to dynamic Christian living left many with much to be desired. The church was not relevant to ordinary life and simple faith obedience to the moral precepts of the Bible. It tolerated evil. Some people wanted to go a step further. Names, Dates and Places to remember: 1708 - Eight people, under the leadership of Alexander Mack baptized in the Eider River by Triune immersion at Schwarzenau, Germany. They declared they were returning to the New Testament more fully than Martin Luther and the other Reformers. 1719 - The people of the Brethren Church came to America. Peter Becker was their leader. Most of them settled and lived near Germantown, Pa. 1723 - On Christmas Day the American group baptized some others and began the first official church in America. Becker was the pastor.

    Defining the Area
    Introduction. The twin counties of Wittgenstein existed as a distinct geographic/political area from the age of Charlemagne until 1975. At this time, it was merged with the neighboring region of Siegen to form the political unit or Kreis called Siegen-Wittgenstein. Wittgenstein (and we will speak of it as a single area) has had a clear identity and virtually the same boundaries since the 1600s, to the great benefit of the researcher. To confuse matters, the ruling families took the name Sayn-Wittgenstein with a further distinction between the Counts of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg and Sayn-Wittgenstein-Hohenstein (based in Laasphe). Geographically, Wittgenstein lies at the southern tip of the Sauerland in west central Germany. The mountains are called the Rothaargebirge , or "red-hair mountains." The present area is about 188 square miles with a 1994 population of 45,000. It is one of the most-densely wooded area of Germany. At its north is Kahler Asten, the tallest peak in central Germany with a height of 2759 feet.

B ridgewater was established in 1880 as Spring Creek Normal and Collegiate Institute by Daniel Christian Flory, an alumnus of the University of Virginia and a young progressive leader in the Church of the Brethren which was organized in Schwarzenau, Germany, in 1708 by Alexander Mack. Nine years later the school was named Bridgewater College and chartered by the Commonwealth of Virginia to grant undergraduate degrees. Bridgewater conferred its first bachelor of arts degree on June 1, 1891, thereby becoming the first of the colleges having historic associations with the Church of the Brethren to grant degrees.
T he founding fathers wisely conceived of and organized Bridgewater as a residential college because they realized that students learn from one another as well as from the faculty. They knew that students from widely different places, holding varied views and opinions, would have much to understand, to adjust, to eliminate, and many inter-relationships to be refined in living together over a period of four years. They surmised that successive student bodies would develop a self-perpetuating tradition which would be educational in itself. T wo major influences, the University of Virginia and the Church of the Brethren, have shaped Bridgewater as an educational institution and created its personality. Its historic association with the Church of the Brethren, its modified Georgian architecture, its Honor Code, and its seal on which is inscribed truth, beauty, goodness, and harmony bear testimony to the strength of these two shaping influences.
