Don't know if I've mentioned it here before or not, but we do have this church in the field online now, so you can see where it is and a picture or two and some church announcements and an odd talk or two by myself.


  1. Can I just get it clear for this dull, cold-ridden brain of mine. You made repeated oblique reference to Malmo. Do I understand correctly that this is the name of the church you now serve?

    I'd rather wondered in the past of it wasn't some oblique reference to a bit of Mennonite European history, a little like Munster.

  2. Every time I read thatI think, "Malmo Mennonite Church"....why the "MC" and not something more obviously Covenant?

  3. Toni, the church I'm now at is called Malmo Mission Covenant Church. It's over a hundred years old and was started by a bunch of swedes who had moved to the area to farm. There were two stores nearby and most importantly a post office. That probably led to the area being called Malmo, after the town in their homeland.

    Now what's left is a church, and the house next door where I live. I call it Malmo for short sometimes.

    Does that help a bit?

    And Johanna, why do you naturally connect it with a Mennonite connection? Malmo Mission Covenant is the name and I figured easier to recall than mmcovenant or mmcc which was taken anyway. MalmoMC is easy to say to people and easy to remember.

  4. Thanks for that.
    I suspect you're the reason Johanna connects it with Mennonite, but I'd be interested to hear otherwise.


I'm moderating all the comments these days.
