Coming into this new job I am feeling so encouraged, humbled, and at peace that this is where I am meant to be. This week at Haywood St. I’ve been able to participate in more than I anticipated for my first week of orientation. I’ve attended a Journey Meeting and broken bread in communion with new brothers and sisters. At the Respite meeting, we had Joyce Holladay speak about living in and creating intentional community. Michael took me to the Homeless Coalition, and I was able to learn about initiatives being taken to help our friends. I rolled silverware, heard life stories, and laughed with my new friends in Respite. Haywood St. has welcomed me and made me feel such a sense of belonging. I’m thankful for this opportunity to build new relationship, see how God continues to grow me, and shape my outlook on life. I’m excited and look forward to growing with this community.
