Top 10 Mennonite Stories in 2009.

The top 10 stories of 2009 at The Mennonite, including:

2. MC USA pastors get The Corinthian Plan
The Corinthian Plan will become a reality Jan. 1, 2010. The health-care access plan of
Mennonite Church USA reached its revised goal in October. Project director Keith Harder expects that nearly 70 percent of the denomination’s eligible, credentialed pastors will be on the new plan. While the original participation goal of 80 percent of Mennonite Church USA congregations will not be met, The Corinthian Plan project team, including MMA staff and actuaries, agreed that there is sufficient participation to have a plan that will have a solid financial foundation.

3. Resolution emerges from Convention 2009

Over 7,000 people gathered June 30-July 5 in Columbus, Ohio, for the Mennonite Church USA Convention 2009. The church’s responses to leaders and congregations not in compliance with the denomination’s teaching position on human sexuality generated several unscheduled sidebar actions. During the convention, a group of activists launched their
"Pink Menno campaign," drawing reporters from Fox News and Associated Press. In response, the Delegate Assembly overwhelmingly passed "A Resolution on Following Christ and Growing Together as Communities Even in Conflict."
