J.J. Thiessen Lecture Series

The J.J. Thiessen Lecture Series

Every year in October the community at Canadian Mennonite Bible College adjusts its normal routine for two days to hear a prominent scholar on a topic pertinent to the college's program of studies. This event brings together not only the students of the college but also church leaders and scholars from the local community. These are important days.
The lectures are named in honour of a Canadian Mennonite churchman-Rev. J.J. Thiessen-who believed in the impor­tance of the kind of Christian education that inspired people to faithful Christian living. His life expressed the conviction that the truth of theology could not be spoken once for always, but that the time and place of its living required fresh embrace and renewed ownership. Hence his love for Christian education. And for him this love was intimately connected with a cultivated memory, not only of the story of faith but of the names of the people who comprise the community of faith.
