Hope Lives, Week Five

Week 1: The Poverty Of The Heart
Week 2: God Is Not Silent
Week 3: Understanding Poverty

The homestretch! It’s perfect timing because it’s likely that I’ll have the opportunity to connect with Amber Van Schooneveld in person this week. She opens week five with this:

“The journey of serving those in need is, in essence, the journey of following Christ. And God has created each person uniquely for the journey, giving each one spiritual gifts, skills, and passions with which to serve him, to be the change we want to see in the world. This week we’ll explore our individual gifts and be reminded that it is God’s grace that sustains us along the way.”

Tomorrow, Mindy and I are going to begin reading Hope Lives: A Journey Of Restoration by Amber Van Schooneveld. It’s a five-week study and the first week is called The Poverty Of The Heart. Van Schooneveld writes…

“The first step on the journey is to understand the poverty of the heart, to search our hearts and ask why it’s sometimes so hard to help those in need. How are things like materialism and individualism stifling compassion? On the journey, we’ll set down the burden of guilt and pick up God’s grace instead.”

We look forward to sharing our thoughts.
