Mennonites, Children and Communion
This last area of study has also been informed by responses to the topic of children and communion in the Canadian Mennonite Brethren Conference of Churches, The Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada and the United Church of Canada.
The statement this thesis is defending is that Mennonite children need concrete, ritualized faith-expressing and faith-nurturing experiences during communion that honour the Mennonite denomination's core convictions about communion, baptism and membership.
Research and reflection has led the author to recommend differentiated participation in communion, not only for children, but for all faith novices who are not yet ready to make a mature and non-coerced commitment to Jesus and his body, the church, as the centre of their lives.
