TESTIMONIALS

What They’re Saying

Mary Dovak
Louisville, KY
“We as a group were called to act on our faith as a result of taking JustFaith Ministries’ program on migration. A couple nurses are learning the Spanish language. Others are greeting incoming refugees to Louisville at the airport. One volunteers at a tutoring center that we visited on our immersion experience (Doors to Hope). One continues to volunteer at La Casita. All in our group feel empowered and competent to speak the truths and facts of our immigrant neighbors to others in our community. All have an appreciation of the tireless efforts of an immigration lawyer from Louisville that was our guest speaker at session 5. As for me I will continue to facilitate JustFaith programs at my church.”
Fr. Daniel Groody
“Migration is one of the most complex issues of our times and one of the most important. This program looks at the connection between what is happening in our outer world in the movement of peoples and what is happening in our inner world with our spiritual lives. It is more than a chance to gain new information; it offers a chance to gain a new imagination about how we are before God and how we are called to reach out to our neighbor in need. As we look at God’s migration to us in the person of Jesus Christ, we can explore more about our return migration to God through a faith that does justice.”

Before EngagingSpirituality, I think I was always working from my own agenda. I am disciplining myself to practice contemplative prayer and intentional listening that may help me honor God’s wild dream first.
