Crossing the Edmund Pettus Bridge

Two MC New Orleans 2015 participants reflect on the powerful experience it was to walk across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama as a Mitzvah Corps community, and as a part of a larger movement in civil rights.

Shabbat Shalom from Mitzvah Corps New Jersey

This week, we dove headfirst into the project of building and living in a community, both our UMC community and the greater New Brunswick community.

Shabbat Shalom from Mitzvah Corps Nicaragua-Granada

Wow, as we take a moment to breathe before Shabbat sets in, we are nearly at a loss for words. This week's Torah portion, Balak (Numbers 22:2-25:9), includes the story of Balaam, who is sent to curse the people of Israel, but each time he attempts to recite the curse, a blessing comes out instead. Though none of us traveled to Nicaragua with negative intentions like Balaam, what we've actually created and built together is far more a blessing than we ever could have imagined.
