Dina Van Klaveren – St. Andrew’s

Working with Wonder Voyage on J2A pilgrimages is like falling into I Corinthians 12 and experiencing fully that to one is given the gift of arranging lodging, to another the gift of corralling teenagers in a museum, to another the ability to instantly regroup based on weather, to another the freedom to engage in conversation with the youth, to another the gift of leading Stone Soup meals, to another the grace to be present as a spiritual companion. When our parish youth program partners with Wonder Voyage, they utilize their many gifts so that our adult leaders and I can have the freedom to live into the gift of spiritual companionship with the pilgrims. This creates space for our adult leaders to observe, participate, pray, facilitate worship and share in conversation. I look forward to another Wonder Voyage in 2017 with the excellent Wonder Voyage trip leaders, who have been faithful companions on the way.
