Anabaptism and Mennonitism

Question: The Anabaptist Vision is coming into it's golden age. Why is it that the Mennonites seem to be in decline? (from Mark Van S. on Facebook)

My response:
Because only some of the Mennonites are Anabaptist. Because the Mennonites are too focused on organization instead of spirituality. Anabaptism will reach it's peak when released from the Mennonite shackle of bureaucracy.

Only when Mennonites see that Anabaptism is a vision, not an organization that need be restructured, that Mennonites will thrive.
