It doesn’t have to hurt
Stemming from an entire series of Helping without Hurting, this book specifically focuses on church benevolence. Benevolence cases are those cases where it is the intention to help others in need.
Churches have various ways of exercising benevolence gifts. Some churches have programs set up on specific week days where their kitchen, pantry, clothes closet, etc is open to the public. Other churches have come & go sessions of benevolence that are informal. But there are some churches who have a formal system setup to help those with benevolence both short-term & long-term.
No matter what avenue a church exercises benevolence through, it is not very easy at times & often hurts both the giver & the receiver.
Thankfully, this book was provided to help churches understand how to operate in benevolence without hurting the receiver short-term & long-term. The theme of this book is restoration & redemption – which is needed in benevolence. This book will be super helpful in both creating & re-evaluating your avenue(s) of benevolence so that restoration & redemption are the goal for the receiver.
