Ken Medema was an amazing musician that would make up songs in response to the speakers. He always got a standing ovation even though he couldnt see it because he is blind.

Mennonites come full circle back toward unity after 100 years of mission work

Leaders from both denominations met in Elkhart, Ind., to talk about the possibility of working together in overseas mission, as portrayed in a skit at the celebration. "Though we labored for hours, talking about a common mission work in India, in the end, we just couldn't do it," Jonathan Larson of Atlanta, appearing as GC missionary P.A. Penner, told John E. Sharp of Goshen, Ind., playing MC missionary J.A. Ressler.

Another part of the celebration was the launching of the New Century of Mission campaign, in which every North American Mennonite household will be challenged to give $100 over regular giving to mission by January 2001. Road Less Travelled, the duo of Doug and Jude Krehbiel of Newton, Kan., performed "This I Know," the song they had been commissioned to write for the campaign.
