Funding Local and Global Missions - Great Article in the Banner

  116 views

This article in the online Banner caught my attention: "The Color of Love." 

The author writes, "How does a church balance the call to minister locally and at the same time not neglect the Great Commission’s mandate to go to the ends of the earth? In our church the answer lies somewhere in our hideous orange carpet."

Read the article, then come back here and share how your church balances local vs global ministry.

Choices, choose to follow God's commission or choose to provide for aesthetics. The choices are never simple or easy. As congregants' resources shrink, so too do church resources. My question is how do we address the olde saying: Give until it hurts? If I give willingly the 'hurt' is less, the joy is more.
