Koinonia Remembered on-line
This book was written in 1992 to mark the 50th anniversary
of Koinonia. With the help of Jeri Abbott, we are working on
seeing the complete text and pictures available on-line. The
book can also be ordered from our web store at cottonpatchstore.com
The following is the original introduction:
By Way of Explanation
The pages that follow are the memories, reflections
and thoughts of the folks who wrote or recorded them and shared
them with all of us. We have tried to give them to you as they
came from them. As one writer. said in his accompanying note:
"Most of this is 'remembered history'." And so it gives
us the feelings people have in their hearts when the word Koinonia
comes to their minds. As another contributor said, "I am
telling the story as I remember it. If the details don't jibe
precisely with those of others from that time, chalk it up to
the distortion of time and memory."
It was difficult to select which of the pictures
to use and many times we wished we could also have used the wonderful
color pictures that people sent.
Thank you to all who contributed stories, tapes
and pictures. Thank you to all who worked at getting the book
together. I hesitate to name names for fear of leaving someone
out --but special thanks to BJ Jones, to J an Zehr, to Art Field
and to my husband, Les.
It has been a rare privilege to put all these
"bits of heart" together. It adds a special dimension
to the place I call my home --a treasure that I share with you.
