When Helping Hurts

Published by: Luke Humphrey

One of the difficulties with the task of global discipleship is making sure that Western missionaries and sending churches are not doing more harm than good.  There are numerous factors to take into consideration when doing gospel-ministry in another culture, and thus, there are many risks that Western missionaries face.  These might be preaching a “Western” gospel rather than a gospel that is relevant to all cultures, or doing community development in way that enables laziness rather than empowers ownership.  In other words, missionaries and senders run the risk

What a Privilege! And a Free Book to Boot!

It is not easy to spot the epoch-making people while they are alive. That’s just as well, I suppose. It helps protect us from idol worship and them from vanity.

But an epoch in world missions is being made, and two of the makers are Ralph and Roberta Winter, founders of the U.S. Center for World Mission. To spend an evening with them would be a remarkable privilege! You are invited to do that at Bethlehem at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 14. I urge you to put it on your calendar now.

In my small discussion group were individuals from Malawi (south central Africa), Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, and Greece. From the very outset, when the sharing of problems was candid the empathy was remarkable. Church issues, family issues, and personal faith issues seemed to be so similar that we could feel each other’s strains immediately. This was a surprise to me.

This morning I was meditating on the appearance of Jesus to the disciples after his resurrection. Incomprehensibly he called them “Brothers”! They had deserted him. They were hiding in fear. They were like . . . me. So I heard the Lord of the universe call me “Brother” this morning (John 20:17).
