Join us for a thoughtful discussion about Christian charity and its unintended effects, as we engage 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 with a passion for giving and service, especially Christians who have a heart for social justice and who volunteer or donate to charity, needs to wrestle with this book.
Jan Fields, a new affiliate member of Druid Hills Presbyterian Church, will facilitate.
If you wish to have a copy of the book for yourself, you may purchase it here, as well as Amazon or Barnes and Noble.
