2018 Clarence Jordan Symposium

Koinonia Fair Trade Chocolate

The 2018 Clarence Jordan Symposium was held March 8-11 at Koinonia Farm and in Americus, Georgia. Chaired by Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, it was a beautiful few days of conversation, fellowship, songs, old friends, and new friends. We came together to discuss and discover ways to Build Up a New World. The last day of the Symposium was held at Koinonia’s Family Reunion and 75th Birthday Party. Over 140 people came to the farm to reunite, remember, and celebrate the past 75 years of Koinonia Farm. The whole Symposium was an encouragement and a reminder that “we are building up a new world, builders must be strong.”

Help sponsor a child to go to Peacebuilders Camp this summer?

Here are some of the ways our 2018 campers want to see the world change:

“I want the world to be cleaner.”
“I would like to see people change first, because you cannot change anything if you don’t change yourself first.”
“Less racism and more women’s rights.”
“I want Congress to act so undocumented immigrants can stay in America without having to worry.”
“I wish people could find a way to truly get to know each other and not be divided or make assumptions because of people’s skin color, religion, or nationality.”

Peacebuilders Camp

In the last couple weeks before our registration deadline, more and more youth are registering to spend a week this summer at Koinonia! They’ll be coming from Americus, from Jubilee Partners, from Alabama, Tennessee, North Carolina, and beyond! One way Peacebuilders Camp takes a stand for social justice is to ensure that no camper is turned away for financial reasons. Tuition is run on a sliding scale and we ask for supporters like you to help make this experience possible for these young people.

Coming Soon!

We are working hard behind the scenes to bring you a new Koinonia Farm Online Store. It will have all of your favorite Koinonia products with a better user experience, updated photos, and a fresh new look. We are hoping to launch it this spring. Stay tuned to our Facebook page, monthly newsletter, and website for updates on the new store.

A Few Thoughts from Bren

“…This Easter mindset is a decision to make over and over and over again. I choose to practice faith even when my faith falters. I choose to invite faith to permeate me even when cynicism threatens to take hold.

Easter is more than a beautiful spring festival, but Easter won’t force itself on us. Easter can change us, make us different and make us new, but we have to invite it in and allow it to permeate our very being.”

A Word from Clarence

“Jesus’ resurrection is not to convince the incredulous nor to reassure the fearful, but to enkindle the believers. The proof that God raised Jesus from the dead is not the empty tomb, but the full hearts of his transformed disciples. The crowning evidence that he lives is not a vacant grave, but a spirit-filled fellowship. Not a rolled-away stone, but a carried-away church.” –”Incarnational Evangelism,” The Substance of Faith
