In Schwarzenau, Germany, on August 2-3, 2008, Brethren celebrated the 300th anniversary of the beginning of the Brethren movement. On Sunday (August 3) a worship service was held in the morning with preaching by  Fredric G. Miller, Jr., pastor of the Mount Olive Brethren Church (VA), and James M. Beckwith, pastor of the Annville (PA) Church of the Brethren and 2008 Moderator of the Church of the Brethren. The Anniversary Program in the afternoon featured as the main speaker Dr. Marcus Meier, author of the new book The Origin of The Schwarzenau Brethren. Saturday (August 2) was a relaxing day for visiting and viewing interesting sites in Schwarzenau. An exhibit of crafts as an introduction to life at the time of the Schwarzenau Brethren, the Alexander Mack Museum, the former Alexander Mach Schule, the old Schwarzenau mill, the village church, the 18th century Bad Berleburg castle, and the Berleburg Bible were all on display. The day concluded with a concert by the McPherson College Choir and three German choirs. This set of two DVDs includes a Wrap-up, the McPherson College Choir, Alexander Mack (impersonated by Larry Glick), a Tour of the Alexander Mack Museum, and entire sermons by Miller and Beckwith.
