Meris Sackett (Class of 2018)


We say all the time, “People are messy.” I have had plenty of first-hand experiences of people’s mess causing hurt to my heart. I chose to shrink off into the corner not be involved in everyone’s life. But through VCLA, God gave me the revelation that I was not meant to live in isolation from people. I was meant to be a light to EVERYONE that I meet. To do that, I had to be willing to get involved in other people’s mess. I am made to love. I am made to lead. I am made for genuine community. I was made in His image and He is full of kindness and compassion for others.
