Let’s be ‘fellowships’

The Mosaic Mennonite Conference name (June 15) is creative, inclusive and reflects the way Eastern Pennsylvania Mennonites work with vision in a good way. It could be improved by using the name Mosaic Mennonite Fellowship, just as Mennonite World Conference is projecting Mennonite World Fellowship as its name change. So also could those “Conference” organizations be changed to “Fellowship” from coast to coast and in Canada. Make it “Virginia Mennonite Fellowship” and let the congregations handle memberships and other such former policies. Congregational polity is the way to go.
