A Fruitful Seed

by Rev. Robert Dean McNeil 11-15-2011

In your December 1979 issue, there was an article paying tribute to Clarence Jordan, founder of Koinonia Farm Community (“Clarence Jordan and Koinonia,” by Joyce Hollyday). With the information from that article, I did a biographical sermon on Clarence Jordan on July 13, 1980, at Portland’s First United Methodist Church, and sent a copy to Clarence’s widow, Florence Jordan. She got me in touch with Millard Fuller, one-time Koinonia resident and later founder of Habitat for Humanity.
