Serge, Grace at the Fray

World Harvest Mission has a new name!  While the "World Harvest" label works pretty well in Africa, particularly since we do a good bit of agriculture and nutrition, the label was confusing for most of the rest of the world.  It is a label shared with several other organizations, and sounds a bit harsh and paternalistic if people are the object of the harvesting.  Over the last year our organization has been preparing to make a switch to a name that is more descriptive, poetic, subtle, unique.  A consulting group interviewed many of us and poured over our stories and ministry, and then created a new identity:  Serge, Grace at the Fray.  The serge stitch is used to bind an unraveling edge of fabric, and that is a beautiful picture of the Kingdom work of the people of Jesus in a world that is broken and crumbling.  By grace, we are re-raveling, binding up the broken-hearted, healing and equipping.  Walking into messy places and carefully pulling the pieces back together.  With prayer and courage, participating in Jesus' work to restore and renew.
