Is Rachel Twigg Boyce the social justice poster girl for the Mennonite Brethren Conference?

In the March 20011 issue of the MB Herald is another article by Rachel Twigg Boyce, this one about Sabbath keeping. It’s not the first time she has been highlighted in the MB Herald or promoted by the Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches. There is nothing wrong with wanting to honor the Lord with a Sabbath rest (even though the ‘Saturday’ Sabbath was a sign between God and the Jews – Exodus 31:13, Ezekiel 20:12,20), but the MB Herald seems to be promoting quite a few traditions over freedom in Christ this month. Besides blending Lent, contemplative Spiritual Direction, and Rachel Twigg Boyce’s Sabbath keeping together, it looks like they are still okay with the spiritual blend behind House Blend.
