A call to Ferguson is what describes this Episcopal Service Corps year for us. The movement calls for us to be a part of it in many different ways and that’s what makes our community unique.
Some of us are called to be in communication with others. Some are called to pray and simply listen. Some are called to be on the front line. We are called to be where are we are most comfortable and are free to feel discomfort in or out of our safety zones.
Ferguson is much like an intentional community. A group of people gathered for a call to service and social justice. We have to focus more on building relationships within those people to form a stronger community. Being at Deaconess Anne House has formed me into the person that is called to be on the front line. It has given me the strength to build those relationships and from those relationships I have gained a family. I have been a part of the growth in both communities of DAH and Ferguson; both which have touched hearts of many and continue to do so.
