Apostasy of the 1960s

Chester Weaver was raised in a Lancaster Mennonite Conference church. As he considers the changes that happened within Lancaster Mennonite Conference in the 1960s, he traces the root causes back to ideas, especially the emphases on fundamentalism and liberalism. Chester observes that some of these very same ideas are being found in moderately conservative Mennonites today. He pleads with us to not repeat history but to learn from it.
