|What is your vocation?||
|How would you describe your work?||
I manage the office for the United States Magistrate Judge in Flagstaff, Arizona. Basically that means I handle everything that comes through the office such as criminal complaints, probation violations, motions etc. I communicate with all other federal agencies and and attorney’s. I manage the judge’s civil calendar and paperwork.
|As an image-bearer of God, how does your work reflect some aspect of God’s work?||
Some defendant’s have remorse for their actions. Many in adjoining office have faith and understand my faith. There is forgiveness given by victims of the crimes committed against them.
|How does your work give you a unique vantage point into the brokenness of the world?||
I have to deal with the defendant’s that commit all kinds of different offense (sins). I listen to the way people deal with such thing in an ungodly manner. Many take no responsibility for their actions. Any many of those actions are against others.
|Jesus commands us to “love our neighbors as ourselves.” How does your work function as an opportunity to love and serve others?||
When speaking with individuals I am able to be compassionate and try not to be judgmental. I am able to assist them with kindness and and courtesy.
