The Common Good

Krystal Brewer

Resources & Circulation Assistant

“But someone will say, ‘You have faith; I have deeds.’ Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by what I do.” – James 2:18

 “Preach the gospel always, and if necessary, use words.” – Unknown (often attributed to St. Francis of Assisi)

As a firm believer that all human beings deserve the opportunity to have a quality and meaningful life, Krystal hopes to answer the call of putting her faith and words into action throughout her internship year with Sojourners. She believes that clean drinking water, breathable air, shelter, food, basic health care, and simple respect as a fellow human being should not be optional, and that it is possible to come from a place of biblical principles and love when addressing these issues on a national and global scale.

Krystal graduated from Southern Oregon University in late 2009 with a theater major and communications minor, and has worked/volunteered as a production manager and assistant, box office representative, stagehand, actor, and mentor. She enjoys the theater and entertainment industry for its unique opportunity to place oneself in another person’s shoes, and as such, is constantly striving to acquire new perspectives and points of view. She believes that the best way to communicate is to understand where someone is coming from, and hopes to always be able to approach new situations with an open mind and a loving heart.

In her spare time Krystal enjoys hiking up mountains, reading books, singing, performing, watching movies, laughing with friends, and looking for more ways to get involved in the community.
