My name is Ted Grimsrud. Thinking Pacifism is a place for reflection and conversation about the intersection of convictions about peace, Christian theology, and social transformation. I recently retired after teaching for thirty years at Eastern Mennonite University in Harrisonburg, VA (here’s my professional page and here is an autobiographical essay about my “journey with Jesus”). I have an additional website that contains many of my non-blogging writings on these themes (peacetheology.net).

  1. Here’s a couple things that stirred thought for me and I would be interested in your take on them:

    Recent quote by John Dominic Crossan from the Inward / Outward quote of the day from Church of the Saviour to which I posted a comment that can be seen at the same link:

  2. We live in Tennessee. There’s a Mennonite community nearby. The garments they wear especially the women are very interesting. I take that as being modest,They don’t drive cars, they use horse and buggy. I found no reference to either of those things anywhere in this site. Perhaps I missed it. We just bought a home for my daughter and her family. Its in a rural Mennonite community in PikevilleTN. The people that sold us the home were on very good terms with “The Mennonite Community”. They often drove them to town.

    Thank you very much.
