We got to the Pietists yesterday.
Someone asked, "SO, what's the difference between the Pietists and the Anabaptists?"
Ah. Yes. That question.
Strom's answer: "While the Pietists considered themselves a part of the larger church, the Anabaptists were much more separatist. But, as the Pietists caught more and more flack from the established church, they tended to lean more towards separatist tendencies. The Church of the Brethren - Dana, you're Brethren, right? - actually reached back to the anabaptist tradition and claimed that separatism as part of their identity."
There we have it, folks. The CoB got 20 seconds the History of Christian Thought.
