Mission Study - Helping Without Hurting

Join us this fall for a 5-week benevolence study, When Helping Hurts: How to Alleviate Poverty Without Hurting the Poor...and Yourself, on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 - 7:30 pm. The class begins on September 6. Sign up at the Missions table or online at frcoc.org/missionsstudy.
Back of the book description... 
Poverty is much more than simply a lack of material resources, and it takes much more than donations and handouts to solve it. When Helping Hurts shows how some alleviation efforts, failing to consider the complexities of poverty, have actually (and unintentionally) done more harm than good. But it looks ahead. It encourages us to see the dignity in everyone, to empower the materially poor, and to know that we are all uniquely needy - and that God in the gospel is reconciling all things to himself.
