Mosaic Centennial Book.pdf
The working title for this book was “100 years, 100 stories.” As people were interviewed,
however, there was a common theme that revolved around the call to serve. It was in the hearts
of the founders and in the hearts of many people who followed in their footsteps. The working
title faded away.
Divided into sections by decades, the two-page spreads in each section share a story of someone
associated with Mosaic. They also feature a story about Mosaic’s history or about Mosaic’s
mission, and a timeline entry about developments in Mosaic’s history.

This book is not intended to be a thorough history, nor an exhaustive overview of Mosaic. The
book’s intent is to share stories about the people and ideas that drive Mosaic – stories and
memories from people served, staff members, volunteers and donors. They have sustained this
mission for 100 years. They will shape its future.
