For eight Tuesday evenings beginning in October, we'll be hosting the Redemptive Compassion course at Greenmonte Fellowship in conjunction with Love Inc. This course is free and open to anyone with an interest in serving their neighbors through the ministry of Love Inc. This is also a great way to further explore how to help and not hinder those whom we serve.
This course will be offered on a first come, first serve basis until it is full. Childcare will be provided. You must sign up in order to take the course. You can sign up by contacting Rande at Love Inc at 540-221-2955 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Another way to sign up is to fill out the sign up form below.
Redemptive Compassion® is a biblical philosophy on how we can offer wholistic help to those we serve. It has evolved over fifteen years of working daily with people who find themselves struggling with needs in their life and unable to overcome them on their own. It challenges many current and common ways of addressing need based upon six core principles:
Everyone has value
We are called to invest relationally in each other
Everyone has capacity and potential
Mutual participation is important
We must use wisdom and discernment
What we do should transform
Need will not change until we change how we address need. We are facing critical times in America, and the Church will soon have an unprecedented opportunity to step to the forefront of addressing need. Will we be ready when the time comes? And more importantly, will we understand what God has biblically called us to do when the opportunity arises?
