Maryknoll Affiliates & Just Faith
A number of Affiliates have been or still are members of Just Faith Ministries (JFM). Over the last several years the Maryknoll entities – Sisters, Fathers/Brothers, Lay Missioners – with ourselves joining in, have had a contractual arrangement with JFM that we anticipate with be mutually beneficial for both Maryknoll and JFM. The respective visions of the two organizations overlap in many ways.
If you are unfamiliar with JFM, here is brief statement of how they define themselves:
JustFaith is an intensive, small-group process for faithful Christians looking to deepen their commitment to care for vulnerable people and our planet. Through prayer, study, dialogue, and immersions, participants form community as they explore critical realities and their implications to their lives and their faith. JustFaith is designed for use in diverse Christian communities.
You can learn more from this link: https://justfaith.org/about-us/ We are very grateful to have Beth Begley as our Affiliate liaison with Just Faith.
To say it quickly, for this relationship with JFM to be worthwhile, we need them to let us know (1) When and where they are sponsoring workshops. Are some of them near Affiliate Chapters. (2) Can an Affiliate (or other Maryknoller) be invited to give a talk or otherwise participate in some way?
Do any of you, especially those who know JFM, have additional suggestions?
Oh… JFM is looking for a new Executive Director. If you are interested? See: https://justfaith.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/ED-Job-Announcement-and-Description.pdf
