Members of the AMBS community, past and present, gathered on March 22 to listen to the stories of women abused by former professor John Howard Yoder and to lament and apologize for the seminary’s inadequate responses and to express commitment to ongoing transparency and fostering healing.

Full-text documents of some of the statements presented at the afternoon service are available on the Reunion, Listening, Confessing page.

Additional documents and recordings will be available in the future.
