Paid Fellowship Opportunity
As a Shepherd Intern, you’ve been exposed to some of the systemic issues that fuel poverty in America. But now that you’re graduating, what’s the next step? Life Together might be for you if:
- You’re interested not merely in volunteering but being a part of a movement; not merely service but social change;
- You are interested in the intersection of spirituality and justice; you suspect that action and contemplation feed each other, and there’s trouble when either one get out of balance; you find yourself wondering how the church can be one of the strongest actors for change in the 21st century;
- You’d like to embed your work for justice in deep and sustaining relationships, and explore the possibilities of living in intentional community with like-minded young adults;
- You’d like to live in the fantastic and troubled town of Boston and learn from veterans in the field how to work for justice and build networks that last.
If this sounds like you, consider submitting an application to our program! Life Together is a 10-month full-time, paid fellowship opportunity through the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts. Each fellow serves 32 hours a week in their own site placement and spends an average of 8 hours a week in leadership training (such as community organizing and non-violent communication); spiritual practice (such as lectio divina, Christian meditation, and prayerful listening); and vocational discernment (through study of the Enneagram, modalities of decision-making, and formalized Spiritual Direction) with the other fellows in the program. Fellows also live in community, sharing regular meals and time for spiritual practice together. Intrigued but want to know more? Luckily, we have a great website – it will tell you anything you’d ever want to know.
If you’re interested in applying, email your cover letter and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to hear from you!
