No Bright Lights
A Redefining Insight Into Effectively Serving the PoorBook - 2010
"The whole area of mission explored by the global church, has developed over the centuries to be expressed mainly through aid and short-term support to areas of extreme poverty. But the deeper you look into the life of a person who has sacrificed much to be with the poor and needy, the more you realize that mission can be less about aid or a response to crisis. It may actually be more about simple principles of consistency and time, combined with a selfless attitude and genuine heart of love. What if mission is not so much about bringing the 'west' to the poor, but more about being with the poor in their setting? What would the long-term effects be in an impoverished community if we stopped providing hand outs, but instead provided a hand up? Off the map, away from any bright lights and certainly not making news headlines, 'mission' is being redefined upon these simple principles"--Container.
