Summer Servant Leader 2009
Meet (some of) the CVR's twenty summer interns! Last week the group gathered for dinner for a final reflection time of reunion and discussion. They met Este Helpenstell, a great supporter of Servant Leader internships; she shared her own vocational journey as a member of the Quad Cities community and co-founder of the Amy Helpenstell Foundation. Many students shared the personal growth that happened through their experiences and reflection exercises. The group also read Let Your Life Speak by Parker Palmer over the ten weeks, which gave insight into his vocational journey. The Center for Vocational Reflection is committed to helping students recognize who they are called to be. Twenty students from Canada to the Quad Cities to Chicago embraced their new communities with a spirit of discovery and openness. We are proud of the work they have done and look forward to reflecting again soon!
