From the editorial:
The book of Ecclesiastes tells us: “For everything there is a season . . . a time to keep silence, and a time to speak” (3:1b, 7b). This issue of Vision calls us to consider a time to speak—to tell what God has been doing among us. For various reasons—historical, cultural, sociological, and theological—individuals and congregations within the Anabaptist streams have done well in living the gospel while struggling at times to proclaim it. It is not either/or but both/and: testimony and service come together in the life of faith. In many ways, this issue of Vision calls us not to miss this opportunity to speak our testimony to a world that may be willing to hear what we have to say.
