Our focus on spiritual formation has been enhanced by a generous grant from the Trinity Wall Street Grants Program. The three-year grant allowed us to develop a program for young adults that is based on Servant Leadership and which emphasizes the inward journey through regular spiritual practice.
Five Values Communion. I am committed to a regular, transformative, centering practice of spirituality and I intend to live the moments of my life increasingly present to life and awake to who I am called to be.
Compassion. I confess my own humanity and acknowledge the heart connection I have with all who share the human condition. I see the light of creation in every person. I embrace people who are different than me, because I understand that we are all one.
Co-Creation. I hear a voice of truth above the clamor of the dominant culture, a voice that asks me to question my culture's assumptions and beliefs. As a servant leader I align my life with this truth and engage with others to be co-creative instruments of justice and peace.
Collaboration. I trust in the abundance of creation to provide all that is needed, so that individuals and groups can collaborate instead of compete. I strive to engage others in full participation and lead in such a way that builds leadership in others.
Character. I am truly accountable to those served and approach opportunities for change with awareness of community assets. I meet commitments on time and act responsibly with public and personal trust. I am accountable for my words and actions.
