Event description

Description

Poverty 101 is a foundation series of interactive exercises and conversational learning that will move each participant to a greater self-awareness of how their life experience has fashioned both their understanding of poverty as well as their thinking about those experiencing poverty. By the end of this training participants will have:

• Explored what the bible says about poverty, how God defines poverty, and how we as his church are to engage with those experiencing poverty.

• Increased self-awareness of life history and how that impacts personal understanding of poverty. • Begun to understand cross-cultural differences of social and economic class.

• Learned about communication and relationship differences and how some specific tools can help build healthy interactions between those experiencing poverty and those in the middle and upper class.

• Considered how economic, political, and social systems create barriers to change.

You will laugh, be moved, inspired, perhaps confronted, and maybe even angered.

You cannot partake of Poverty 101 and not be moved in some way.

Poverty 101 invites you on a journey to perhaps see yourself and those affected by poverty in a new light. “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ – Matthew 25:34-36
