Know that the Koinonia commitment to live day in and day out treating all as brothers and sisters who are called to care for one another will not fade. Koinonia is a small place, but with all the resources we have, we will continue to work for justice and to live in a just way.
It is about an encounter. It is about reading slowly, sometimes even aloud, listening and pausing to reflect on a word or a phrase that captures you. It is about letting the text work on you rather than you working on the text.
I reflect about the ways Koinonia has changed in its first 78 years and wonder about how it will change in its next 78. I’m comforted by the thought that some things will remain the same. We’ll still be telling stories and I’d be surprised if we aren’t still offering welcome to all — hospitality has been central from the beginning.
