Nearly 450 Mennonites from ten different countries attended the 2006 Mennonite European Regional Conference 25-28 May in Barcelona. Ì¢‰âÒFreedom is Commitment: Living the Will of God,Ì¢‰âÂå the theme of this year’s gathering, was the first time in its thirty-year history that the gathering has taken place outside the four countries of historical Mennonite history in Europe (France, Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands). Participants at Barcelona spoke five languages: French, German, Dutch, Spanish and English. (Mennonite Mission Network)
