Please join us for a thoughtful discussion about Christian charity and its unintended effects. For three Sunday mornings before worship, we will be engaging in a conversation centered on a book called Toxic Charity, written by veteran activist Robert D. Lupton, founder and president of FCS Urban Ministries in Atlanta.
In Toxic Charity, Lupton urges individuals, churches, and organizations to step away from spontaneous, often destructive acts of compassion toward thoughtful paths to community development. He delivers proven strategies for moving from toxic charity to transformative charity.
Everyone, especially Christians, who has a heart for social justice and who volunteers or donates to charity needs to wrestle with this book. Jan Fields, a new affiliate member of Druid Hills Presbyterian Church, will be the facilitator. The class will meet from 10:00 am to 10:45 am beginning on May 03 and continuing on May 10 and May 17. Hope you can join us!
