Reflections on the Mennonite Heritage Cruises in Ukraine

Feb 21 7:00PM

For sixteen years (1995–2010), groups of Mennonite pilgrims assembled on a passenger ship on the Dnipro River to participate in the Mennonite Heritage Cruises, to fellowship and learn about the Mennonite story in Ukraine. Nearly a year ago, Russia launched a full-scale invasion of this land Mennonites once called home. In this webinar event, displaced Ukrainian scholar Nataliya Venger, Heritage Cruise organizer Marina Unger, and CTMS co-director Aileen Friesen reflect upon Mennonite engagement with Ukraine and recognize the publication of a new edition of The Mennonite Story in Ukraine: The Heritage Cruise Lectures by Paul Toews.
