Another quote from a meeting of the General Board of Global Ministries. The picture was posted by my Superintendent, Carlo Rapanut, who is attending the meeting.

This quote gets us beyond the “paternalism” that is often associated with mission work and a missional focus — where the “haves” minister to the “have nots.” And, it’s something that is a constant struggle in my own setting as we keep looking out to the world for those we should “help.”

Glad the United Methodists are tackling these important issues.
