My purpose is to serve for a year as a Peace Corps Response Volunteer (PCRV).
PC Response Volunteers fill specific needs for skills and expertise. Along with language and cross cultural understanding, they are able to have an immediate impact where it is most needed.
Last Fall I ran across this posting for an Organizational Management Expert. I thought, "That sounds like me." My working life has always involved developing and managing organizations. While in
Lord, make me an instrument of your Peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair,hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
in pardoning that we are pardoned;
it is in dying that we are born again to eternal life.
