As an extension of the English Department, The Pendragon Writing Center embraces their vision listed below.
The Vision of Geneva College's English Department
In the beginning the Word was with God
And God spoke the worlds into being.
Then and now those worlds sing their words back to God;
God hears, enjoys, and joins the singing.
The Word gives breath and can take breath away;
The Word informs and imagines.
The Word that condemns can take death away;
The Word sustains and envisions.
Now some words are broken, and wordsmiths die,
And some names are said all in vain.
We sing some songs as sad as a sigh,
But the Word still speaks and His words sustain.
Christ calls a name and He images the same;
He figures, patterns, and designs.
We read, we write, we watch, and we wait,
And our words with the Word he aligns.
