Koinonia Good News! - June 24, 2021

From the Board of Directors and our Executive Director

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,


Psalm 133 is so peaceful. I don’t understand the imagery of precious oil running down the neck and beard of Aaron. I do understand the beauty of mountain dew in the quiet of a morning. And I believe in a Zion where we will gather in unity and there will be the blessing of life forevermore. The psalm is a total of three verses. I’ve left out verse 2, about the anointing of Aaron. 


“How good and pleasant it is when kindred dwell in unity. It is like the dew of Hermon which falls on the mountains of Zion! For there the Lord has commanded a blessing, life forevermore.”


We invite you to spend time at Koinonia where Christ unites us as brothers and sisters, where the beauty of unity with God, with one another and with nature will renew you!
