A Good Word from Damon

At the St Stephen’s Episcopal mission luncheon, Damon Jiggetts, the executive director of the PeterPaul Development Center, talked about employment.  He talked about creating opportunities that would be here when the current children of PeterPaul are adults.  How do we help God shape those opportunties?

Damon gave the example of a few young men from the neighborhood who have desired to start a mentoring and basketball program — how they came forward independently with a similar idea and now the task is supporting them as they make their vision a reality.

How can we continue to support young people, in making their visions a reality?  It is more than just a job that we are all seeking, it is a vocation, a sense of purpose in our lives.
