Chapter 8 Highlights
- Church members care about local and global need as demonstrated by their response to emergency situations.
- The resources exist to solve, rather than just cope with, many of the life-threatening problems faced particularly by those in other areas of the world.
- Church members want to know what their money is doing when it leaves the congregation.
- There is a need for a logical approach if church members are to be challenged to increase giving to missions.
- One strategy, first offered in 1984 and now presented in a twenty-year update, is the idea of a Yoking Map. This strategy distributes resources based on the location of physical and spiritual needs around the globe.
- Whether church members choose to increase giving to help their neighbors is a basic moral choice.
