Anabaptists

Zurich city council insisted that all newborn infants be baptized, which was a serious matter since Grebel’s group believed water baptism was not for infants, but for believers only. And now that Grebel’s wife had just given birth to a new baby, what were they to do? The Grebels refused to baptize their baby. Other parents followed suit. Zwingli met secretly with Grebel’s group, hoping to talk them down off the ledge, but to no avail. Then Zwingli wrote an article accusing his own followers of causing rebellion and unrest. On January 17, 1525, the council sided with Zwingli, ordering anyone refusing to have their child baptized to be expelled. Four days later, on January 21, 1525, as Grebel’s group met at Felix Manz’s house, George Blaurock, a former priest, turned to Conrad Grebel and asked him to baptize him. The first adult water baptism was performed, and the first free church (free from state rule) in modern times was born. The Catholic Church called them Anabaptists, meaning “rebaptizers,” to label them as heretics and begin the process of persecution. They resented the title, preferring simply “Baptists.” After all, since the ceremonial sprinkling of infants was unscriptural, theirs was not a rebaptism but the only baptism. In 1526, the Zurich city council released a mandate stating that anyone who rebaptized another did so under penalty of death by drowning. Evidently if these heretics wanted water, they decided to let them have it! In less than two years, Felix Manz, the man in whose house the first Anabaptist meeting took place, became the first Anabaptist martyr. George Blaurock fled east and was burned at the stake. Within four years, between 4,000 and 5,000 of the Swiss Brethren were executed by fire, water, or sword. Others fled to Germany, Austria, or Moravia, where sympathetic and tolerant princes remained. --except from autho Jeff Oliver's book

Children's Prayer Revival

In a period of days and in five principalities in Silesia now part of Poland, children began praying three times a day. There was no assigned leader and the children were between four to twelve years of age, depending on the sources sharing. Up to 1000 children met in places and their prayers netted revivals that lasted for 20 years. The book Kinderbeten is one source that put a lot of work into exploring this amazing revival. What is also amazing is children from this revival formed the core of what we would later describe as the "Moravians" and the 100-year prayer
