Your JVC Prayer Journal contains several prayers for you to sit with and think through in quiet stillness over the course of the next two weeks!
"For me, the process of finding my vocation has been one not so much of finding it like you find a treasure, but of gradual exploration and learning. It’s been a process of taking steps. "
"Through the lens of the four values of community, simple living, social justice, spirituality, I can’t help but think of the social justice work I am engaging in at OPD. I am working in a system that often targets communities of color in the name of safety and protection."
"Even though this season of teaching looks different, the vocation that I know God has called me to is still the same. JVC's value of simple living has propelled my ability to adapt to the struggles of distance learning. The perseverance that comes with simple living has also been monumental."
"JVC hadn’t been an interesting gap year where I was able to live in New York City and use all my good Samaritan skills to “help” people who needed help. It was a year-long, daily agitation, and instruction in the profound and purposeful inequality in America."
"It was in Detroit I learned that we worship a God who gets her hands dirty, who cries over the injustice of the world, who gets angry when we torture each other the ways we do."
