Moving from Charity to Solidarity

Description: This workshop offers a wholistic model for congregational caring ministries which include charity, mutuality, advocacy, and solidarity. The first two focus on ministries of mercy while the last two focus on addressing root causes and “doing justice.” All are needed. How can we find room in our churches for all four?”

Audience: Mission/Outreach, Social Justice

Outcome: Learn the importance of mercy and justice.
