During General Conference 2010, E. Morris Sider — distinguished Brethren in Christ church historian and professor emeritus at Messiah College — presented an historical sketch about a significant mid-century meeting of Brethren in Christ church leaders that served as “a catalyst for change” within the conservative fellowship.
Check out the video above. Sider’s paper is brief, but he tells a remarkable story — one that certainly has played a profound role in shaping Brethren in Christ life and thought over the past six decades.
(On a humorous note: My favorite moment is when he breaks away from his prepared remarks to quip of Carlton Wittlinger’s Quest for Piety and Obedience, “I like to call it a ‘magisterial book.'” Priceless!)
