It was deeply heartwarming to have the Cobb and Lloyd families back at Stony Point Center last month to celebrate the life of former SPC Director Jim Palm. Jim and his wife Louise - who is pictured in this photo as we planted a sugar maple in Jim's honor - were the spiritual heart and soul of Stony Point Center from 1974 through 1993.
Under their leadership, SPC built on its legacy of innovative mission work to become a home for asylees who were fleeing religious and/or political persecution. Working with Jim, they articulated a strong theological foundation for the growing international movement for peace and justice.
In so many ways, it is their shoulders upon which we are standing as we reach for the stars!
