“Is There a Lesson” film

The Mennonite Heritage Center announces a new documentary film Is There a Lesson: 45 Years with John Ruth and TourMagination. View a trailer below.

Woven by John and son Jay Ruth from over four decades of John’s Anabaptist-related tour-leading with TourMagination, the colorful program moves from still photography of the 1960’s through decades of film footage to video from John’s last of over 60 tours in 2017. The 90 minute video emphasizes the Anabaptist theme of biblical nonresistance.

For those who did not join the Anabaptist Heritage Trail tour, this is an opportunity to view the sites and experiences of the trip. Those who did travel with John will be able to review and compare their own memories. The program is open to the public – no reservations are needed. An offering will be taken at the program, with the contributions going to the Mennonite Heritage Center after the productions expenses for the film are covered.
