As my year of service comes to a close, one last community check-in

After a loss and a gift, I am rebuilding my trust in God

My year of service has shown me the many facets of social justice work

Making bracelets with the boys was my first breakthrough to relationship

Thinking existentially at the 'gates of Hope'

The importance of meaningful relationships and empathy

The unexpected guides me to a whole new social justice mission

Seeking simplicity, in New York of all places

Finding community outside our comfort zones

'I got you': Three little words pack a powerful punch, if you mean them
