Loving Neighbors: Addressing Generational Poverty in Local Communities
“Jesus said, "The poor shall always be with you...." I thought he meant you will never solve the issue of poverty, there will be poor people somewhere in the world, always. What if Jesus means the poor should always be WITH us (Christians)? Meaning we should be walking with the poor as they are walking with us.” Jeff Newton
A third path
of living missionally is taking the plight of the materially poor, seriously. In this part of the work-shop we will focus on strategies that are useful to churches as they work WITH
those who are materially poor. By understanding the culture of poverty ways will be explored to help without
hurting, so that people will flourish.
