Here is an article I published in 1997 (Gospel Herald) called “Who are my mother and brothers?” This article was assigned to me as part of a series of articles the magazine ran on questions Jesus asked. This article reflects on how Jesus challenged kinship-centered understandings of faith by opening his definition of “family” to include all who are faithful to his message. I then reflected on the significance of this challenge to Jesus to Mennonite church life.
