Greetings WAC Community,
God is not unjust; God will not forget your work and the love you have shown as you have helped God’s people and continue to help them. – Hebrews 6:10
One of two justice-related job openings may interest you or someone you know! One is part-time. One is full time.
Part-Time: Executive Director, Wyoming Interfaith Network (WIN) begins January 1, 2018, part-time, flexible hours, may live anywhere in Wyoming. Make inquiries to Board Chairman, Carl Carmichael, 307-421-7575 or email@example.com.
Yes, this is for my current position that I am leaving at the end of this year. The new person will not replace me, as who could do that? Just kidding; but seriously, the one selected will have his or her gifts to bring and surely will expand the vision. I have loved this “dream job” over the last six years serving God and the many faith communities in Wyoming and especially my work with people of the Wind River Reservation.
Now it’s time for me to move on to other endeavors while I continue to live in Riverton and for someone else to take on the mantel of this Wyoming-based organization that has promoted justice and spiritual living for more than 40 years. Our voice demonstrates that our work is crucial as we strive to protect Wyoming’s sacred ground, see that the interests of the poor and vulnerable are considered by decision-makers and urges understanding and appreciation of diversity. Our becoming interfaith, and thereby more inclusive, only broadens what we can do. This is an ideal position for someone with a part-time job and wants more or perhaps someone going to graduate school or maybe someone who is moving toward retirement but still wanting meaningful work.
Another job opportunity that is full time and I might have desired earlier in my life is Executive Director of Eagles Hope Transitions in Riverton. This is a fairly new organization and I am a very new board member. Eagles Hope has acted without paid staff, and was led by its volunteer founder. But like any new organization, there comes a time when it needs more structure, especially to meet the needs of 16 individuals or couples transitioning from homelessness, treatment or imprisonment back into the community.

Don’t forget to register for our events on our website coming up in September: Understanding the Muslim Faith in Casper and Undoing Racism in Cheyenne. In a few weeks we will be ready for you to register for our Annual Meeting, with this year’s theme, Finding Common Ground, in Cheyenne, October 19-21 and Undoing Racism in Riverton October 25-27.
Fear not. Be bold. Do justice.
