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!
“Learning how to practice the skills of cultural humility, checking my own assumptions, and becoming more self-aware are foundational for any chaplain and, for me, skills I first began to intentionally develop as a JV.”
"Thank you, God, for opening us to this JVC community, for helping us commit to simple living, for challenging us to engage opportunities for social justice, for allowing us to celebrate spirituality with one another."
"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."
