Interrelational Discussion Group – Poverty

Posted by on Aug 19, 2008 in love, service | Comments Off

This Saturday evening, August 23, at 7:00 pm, I am helping to lead a discussion group on serving the poor. If you want to know more about this “Interrelational Discussion Group”, I mentioned it several weeks ago in a post called “Interrelational Discussion Group – Scripture“. So far, I have been able to take part in discussions on the ecology, Scripture, and the church. I was not able to attend the night that the group discussed torture. The purpose of this group is to invite Christians to discuss practical issues related to the gospel.

God has moved my family to a point where we are regularly interacting with and serving the poor. If you are interested in my thoughts on serving the poor, here are a few posts that I’ve written recently: “Boasting in humiliation“, my ongoing series on John Perkins’ book Beyond Charity (“Introduction“, “Our Vision“, “Our Gospel“, “Lollipop Love“), “Mercy not Sacrifice“, “God works through my wife too“, “Opportunities to Serve“, “Small steps toward ‘out there’“, “Living ‘out there’“, “God loves the homeless“.

If you are interested in taking part in this discussion group – or any other discussion group (every two weeks) – and if you will be in the Wake Forest, NC area on Saturday, August 23, then get in touch with me for more information. You can leave a comment here, or send me an email (my email address is at the top right of this blog).
