About-

“This booklet expands upon Regehr’s lectures in which he argues that demographic and political shifts in how Mennonites engage the Canadian federalist democracy leave today’s Mennonites with an uncertain hermeneutic. The Mennonites are no longer exclusively ethnic. A demographic typology includes those who are ethnic and committed to the Mennonite church, ethnic and non-churched, non-ethnic and part of the Mennonite church, or ethnic and part of another denomination. Concurrent with this demographic shift, the politics of Canadian Mennonites has changed from alternating swings of martyrdom and patronage, to a disproportionately high representation in elections and candidacies—roughly one-quarter of the recent Manitoba provincial candidacies.”
