Landisville Mennonite Church



Mennonite Life will host its Annual Storytelling Night on Monday, August 7, 2023, at 7 pm at Landisville Mennonite Church. The event will feature storytellers Karl McKinney and Karen Sensenig. Told in a series of short-format stories, McKinney and Sensenig will relate personal anecdotes from their richly varied life experiences.

A video recording of this event will eventually be available on our Youtube channel.

Mennonite Life welcomes donations to support our storytelling and conservation efforts.


Karl McKinney lives with his wife Kellie in Landisville, PA. Karl serves as the Intercultural Leadership Minister of LMC (formerly Lancaster Mennonite Conference). He is focused on helping LMC to address oppression in its mindset, systems and structures.

Karen Sensenig was aware of God’s presence as a young child in the midst of a coup in Ethiopia, and has carried trust in God throughout her adult life as a wife, mother, teacher, pastor, chaplain and now as a potter and spiritual director. Her life has unfolded in ways she could not have imagined, always stretching her to embrace more of what God has called her to be, as she seeks to live with expectancy, rather than expectations. Most of her stories will take place in intercultural settings.
