Dear Young Adult Volunteer Alumni,

Thank you for being unhappy at the way things are, the way “the world works.”  Thank you for following in the way of Jesus.   Thank you for letting in the sorrows of others.   Thank you for sharing your troubles with others.   Thank you for leaving the familiar, and finding God in a new place.   Thank you for laughing at yourselves.   Thank you for crying with others.   Thank you for admitting that you don’t have the answer. Thank you for speaking out against inequality and unfairness.   Thank you for telling the stories of those whose stories might otherwise never be heard.   Thank you for your service.

Go, love and serve your Neighbor.
