Called, Served, and Serving Still

Often we are asked what our motto means and very simply, it describes how we live our lives as people of faith.  Many of us fulfilled our professional calling as service personnel for churches.  We may have gone overseas as missionaries or served in our own backyards as deaconesses.  We may have pastored churches or worked as administrators for mission organizations.  Regardless of how God called us, we engaged in a life of service to and with others.

As retired adults, we have not stopped living out our faith in action.  Whether we volunteer with organizations in the community or participate in missions projects on campus, we actively engage in issues that are important to us.  Some areas of social justice that we lend our voices, hearts, and hands to:

  • Creation care and climate justice
  • Animal welfare
  • Racial justice and reconciliation
  • Affordable housing
  • Systemic issues contributing to marginalization of individuals such as poverty and illiteracy
  • Immigrants’ rights
  • Maternal and child health
  • Global peace
  • Access to health care
  • Domestic violence awareness
  • Civil and equal rights for all

This commitment to serving still is what makes our community unique.  Even though we may come from diverse mission experiences or demographics, we have the common language of faith and the common desire of service.
