In today’s #FaithandCulture Reading, we cull a brief list of some of our favorite articles of the week. Today, we highlight resources from Brian Fikkert, Brittany Salmon, Jessica Schroeder, Kevin S. Hall and Megan Lindsay.
Jessica Schroeder answers this question at The Instititue of Faith, Work and Economics:
The fellowship of believers plays a key role in encouraging believers to persevere.
Brian Fikkert offers wise suggestions for practices which help alleviate poverty at Made to Flourish. He writes,
Do you see people living in poverty as your co-laborers in poverty alleviation? Does the advice you give or the program you administer fit into the real experience of those you serve? Would the activities your ministry encourages in the community where you work continue if you left?
Over at The Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, Brittany Salmon suggests practical tips for serving widows and orphans. She writes,
Prayer is never an empty sentiment in the believer’s life. Instead, it’s a powerful tool to advance God’s Kingdom in our world, and so we pray big and audacious prayers over the orphaned and widowed.
From our Sister Blogs
Intersect serves as the blog of the Center for Faith and Culture (CFC) at Southeastern Seminary (SEBTS). Take a few minutes to look at recent posts from our sister Centers:
- Helping Missionaries Rather Than Hurting Them
Kevin S. Hall: “Work with and for those on the mission field, rather than for yourself or for what you can accomplish and get out of the trip.”
- Mobilizing Students to Go: An Interview with Megan Lindsay
Megan Lindsay: “There are incredible opportunities for students to go, and the IMB is looking to send more students than ever before.”
