In December 2005, Robert Suderman was appointed General Secretary of Mennonite Church Canada. Over the next few months, he visited each local church of his denomination, more than two hundred congregations on what he called a "listening tour." Suderman presents what he heard in this book. Relying heavily on direct, unedited quotes from more than 300 hours of face-to-face meetings with the grassroots of Mennonite Church Canada, Suderman offers a glimpse of the denomination's needs, wants, and concerns.

"Jack Suderman's unorthodox idea--to visit all 230 Mennonite Church Canada churches in under three months--turns into a journey that reaches the hearts and souls of congregations. While not minimizing the pain or the challenges that face churches, this is an uplifting, provocative, poignant, and ultimately hopeful book that re-calls the church to its original mission as outlined in the apostle Paul's letter to the Ephesians. Its implications reach far beyond the Mennonite Church in Canada. Important reading for pastors and for congregations." -- Marianne Mellinger

“By reflecting back what he heard, Jack Suderman helps us appreciate more fully who we are, in all our exhilarating and sometimes exasperating diversity. By helping us reflect on what he heard, Jack helps us envision who we might become – if we allow our spiritual imagination to be unleashed in the church.” -- Henry Paetkau, President, Conrad Grebel University College
