Embracing the Past

We have posted first-hand accounts, historical articles, photographs, timelines, and much more on our Koinonia History pages so that visitors may learn about our inspiring and challenging past. Feel free to spend some time in our virtual learning center.


From the founding of Koinonia Farm in 1942 until his death in 1969, Clarence was Koinonia's spiritual guide. His understanding of New Testament teachings informed Koinonia's pacifism, resource sharing, and work towards brotherhood among all people. His famous writings, including the Cotton Patch Version of the gospels and his book on the Sermon on the Mount, are still read widely by laypeople and scholars alike.
