Dear Friends of Koinonia,
Can it be true that Koinonia turns 70 in 2012? Yes, it is true indeed. 2012 is also the 100th anniversary of Clarence and Florence Jordan’s birth. Mark your calendars for a series of very special events to commemorate the occasion.
We will kick off the celebration with the Clarence Jordan Symposium to be held in Americus on September 28th and 29th, 2012. The symposium will bring together theologians, activists, academics and lay leadership influenced by Clarence and the Koinonia experiment. Topics will include peace making, story telling, homiletics, partnership housing, environmental theology, racial reconciliation, fair trade, the beloved community, Civil Rights, agriculture and stewardship of God’s earth and much more. Our good friend, Kirk Lyman-Barner, has agreed to chair this event.
