Recorded on April 11th, 2021: The ban is not widely practiced in our modern Mennonite communities anymore, but historically every Anabaptist group has practiced it in some form or another. Many of us might be inclined to see this history as irrelevant to our current lives. However, Tom looks at this and other histories that we might prefer to ignore and explores how our histories shape us. He shares his thoughts and experiences on how the historical practice of the ban is still relevant to our conversations about grace and accountability.
