Clarence Jordan: Planting Seeds

Sunday, July 29, would have been the 100th birthday of Clarence Jordan. Along with Millard Fuller and other supporters of Koinonia Farm, Clarence developed the idea of partnership housing.

How that idea has grown! Habitat for Humanity is a worldwide ministry that has helped more than 2.5 million people. As we celebrate the births of Clarence and his wife Florence 100 years ago, we celebrate the lives that have been transformed by Clarence’s determination to live out the gospel.

Enjoy Koinonia and Clarence’s words and leave your appreciation of his wonderful legacy in the comments below.
