WHH CHAPTER 3 QUESTIONS

  1. What is the root of poverty? What is reconciliation?
  2. Think about your church’s ministries and missions efforts. Do they include a clear, verbal articulation of the gospel? If not, what are some specific things that could be done to improve this?
  3. Again, think about your church’s ministries and mission efforts. Are they about people and processes or about projects and products? List some specific things that you could do to improve these initiatives.

Relief:

An effort to “stop the bleeding.” It is the urgent and temporary provision of emergency aid to reduce immediate suffering from a natural or man-made crisis, and it primarily utilizes a provider-receiver dynamic.

Rehabilitation:

An effort to restore people back to their pre-crisis state after the initial bleeding has stopped. In rehabilitation, people begin to contribute to improving their situation. •

Development:

Walking with people across time in ways that move all the people involved—both the “helpers” and the “helped”—closer to being in right relationship with God, self, others, and the rest of creation than they were before. It avoids “doing for” and focuses on “doing with.”
