Jesus is the man who said, “blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God” (Matthew 5:9). My God calls us to make peace with one another, to see his likeness in the people we are told should be our enemies (spoiler: they’re not our enemies).

On August 25 we commissioned Ailih Weeldreyer and Langley Hoyt as Young Adult Volunteers, who will both be serving in Washington, D.C.

The Young Adult Volunteer (YAV) program is an ecumenical, faith-based year of service for young people, ages 19-30, in sites around the world and in the United States. YAVs accompany local agencies working to address root causes of poverty and reconciliation while exploring the meaning and motivation of their faith in intentional community with peers and mentors. YAVs serve during the academic year, August to July.
