Micah Intern

Life Together

I recently spent a year participating in the Life Together young adult intern program of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts.  This year involved living in an intentional community, working at an intern at a host site and assisting the Hope in Action campaign.

I worked at a church in Waltham, a suburb of Boston.  My primary job was to create fellowship between the predominately white church that owns the building and the Ugandan Anglican church that rents space at the building.  I accomplished this by planning and executing several events, including a Christmas party, a church cleanup and a bilingual service.  In addition to this work, I taught Sunday School, preached and met with parishioners in a one-on-one setting?

In addition to my work at the church, I served on the support staff of the Hope in Action campaign.  Hope in Action is an initiative of the Episcopal Diocese of Boston that engages young adults in social action by using the Marshall Ganz style of community organizing.  The campaign hosts many training events throughout the year, for which I served as support staff.I performed a variety of roles at these trainings, including modeling different ideas through role playing, facilitating a learning team and maintaining the flow of the overall event.This experience has prepared me well to support the preparation and execution of Interfaith Leadership Institutes.
