The journal “Brethren Life and Thought” is celebrating 60 years and editor Denise Kettering-Lane has planned two exciting issues to help us celebrate.
Vol. 60 No. 1 (Spring 2015) will revisit some of our popular articles from the past, offering contemporary reflections on topics such as women in ministry, the peace position, adult baptism, worship, and church leadership. Dana Cassell, Dawn Ottoni-Wilhelm, Christina Bucher, Scott Holland, John Ballinger, and Samuel Funkhouser will consider current positions on these topics in conversation with past “Brethren Life and Thought” articles.
Vol. 60 No. 2 (Fall 2015) is planned to honor the late Kenneth Shaffer, Brethren historian and archivist, who supported “Brethren Life and Thought” for many years and served the Journal Association board in many capacities. Articles will discuss a variety of historical topics as well as issues related to the preservation of Brethren materials. There also will be several short reflections on Shaffer’s contributions among the Brethren.
