Literature about MCC values, depicted in a word cloud.

Literature about MCC values, depicted in a word cloud.

At my first Mennonite Central Committee orientation last week, a lengthy brochure described their identity, purpose, vision, priorities, and approaches.  Out of curiosity, I inserted this information in a word cloud program, and the result is depicted.  Good news friends:  God is bigger than MCC (!).  So is Jesus.  In the key words that popped up and the connections between them, if this is what MCC believes, I’m on board.  An interesting experiment to test the organizations you work for and/or support around the language they use regarding what’s prominent, what’s missing.  Language matters.
