Introduction to the Author: Deborah-Ruth Ferber is a zwiebach eating, borscht loving, Mennonite pacifist who studied her Master’s of Divinity and her Bachelor’s of Religious Education at Tyndale University College and graduated with a Certificate of Theological Studies (concentration: Peace Studies) from Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary. Deborah has a special interest in international development, social justice/social change, and economic justice. Currently she is giving special consideration to exploring the intersection of peace and marginalization and the Theology of Constructing the Other, specifically in relation to people with developmental disabilities. When Deborah is not musing about peace or trying to replenish the diminishing Paska supply, she is usually off being a Mennonite rebel – riding motorcycles and pretending to dance (except that she can’t because she’s a Mennonite).
