About Third Places
Third places are those locations, networks, and groups that are beyond our congregation, and they can look different for each one of us. For some, it may be vocational work in peacemaking and restorative justice, learning from “the least of these.” For others, it’s volunteer work making a difference, like with the Banquet. For others, it’s finding a place of consistent gathering (like a coffee-shop), where you start to build and nurture relationships. When we are in the world, the world is our host.
A Possible Project
Our congregation is currently discerning a major series of projects in peace-making around Sioux Falls and beyond. Watch for more information.
Commissioned for Service
We currently have commissioned two persons from the Abbey for special work beyond our walls.
Dennis Lehmann is serving with Mennonite Disaster Service and Jack Scandrett is serving as transitional pastor with Hutterthal Mennonite Church.
