This is a photograph of at a Mennonite wedding in Chain O' Lakes State Park in Albion, Indiana. The man dancing in the middle of the group is the groom's father. Mennonites are a Christian faith group that began in the 16th century. Currently there are over one million members world-wide. Mennonite beliefs and practices vary widely, but following Jesus in daily life is a central value, along with peacemaking. Menno Simons was an early prominent leader and eventually the group became known as “Mennonites” because of his name.
