Common Identities

Christian faith expressed by Mennonites is demonstrated in life and community and much more than simple Sunday church attendance. This section gives a list of categories that are both common and important for understanding the lives of individual Mennonites, particularly their lives of Christian faith in families, in communities, in occupations. These "common identities" words and categories should be considered and studied when describing the complex lives and many faceted interactions of Mennonites in their faith and life journeys as they interact in communities with fellow believers and with outsiders.
