“The story that is Goshen College has always contained within it the narrative seeds of the vision described in Scripture: a “tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit … with leaves for the healing of the nations” (Revelation 22:2). Not one, not two, not six, but 12 kinds of fruit. All on one tree. Truly it is a tree of life!”
Thanks to James Gingerich’s leadership, the health center is guided by its mission and its stories. It was through storytelling that the people who cared about the center came to realize that in most of the iconic stories important to the center, when people focused on needs, needs multiplied. When they focused on assets, assets multiplied.
