From Privilege to Cruciformity

March 13, 2022


Many of you here know of Michael “MJ” Sharp, I assume. He spent part of his growing up years in Goshen and went to Bethany Christian High School, where he had a bit of a reputation as a trouble-maker. But he was very smart and had an expansive vision of what he wanted to do with his life.

For a while he worked for Mennonite Central Committee in the Congo, talking young soldiers into laying down their weapons and going home. He was very successful at that. Then he worked for the United Nations, also in the Congo, tracing and documenting violent atrocities.
