#JVReflects explores the intersection of faith and justice from the perspective of Jesuit Volunteers serving as long-term volunteers both domestically and internationally with Jesuit Volunteer Corps and Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest.  Reflections specifically focus on the cornerstone values of the Jesuit Volunteer experience: spirituality, simple living, community, and social justice.
