Pax Committee

A PAX committee of Al Keim, Orville Schmidt, Arlo Kasper, Arlin Hunsberger and Cal Redekop has several projects under way–the Pax Film Project; the Histand Gift; and most recently the creation by the Mennonite Bible School near Basle of a “peace walk which features among other things a fountain rededicated to PAX.

In July the Backnang, Germany community held a 50th anniversary celebration for the construction of their church house by PAX men.  A number of PAX men attended.

I’d like to invite a 1000 word essay on the 50th anniversary event of the Enkenbach siedlung in 2003.  At the invitation of the siedlung and the leadership of Orville Schmidt more than 40 men and their spouses attended the event.

Please send in (  stories, recollections, current experiences, thoughts and reflections.  All will be published by this web page.
