PovertyCure - a Six-Part Video Series for Small Groups


At Calvary CRC, Ottawa, we have recently used a six-part video series PovertyCure, and liked it. The video series addresses the question, "How do people in the developing world create prosperity for the "poor" overseas and in their communities?"

The six parts are entitled

  1. Charity that Hurts
  2. The Entrepreneurial Calling
  3. Justice for the Poor
  4. The Circles of Exchange
  5. The Power of the Gospel
  6. Churches, Communities, and Culture

The series is produced by Acton Media and is linked below.

The Acton Institute ("parent" of Poverty Cure if I'm not mistaken) is a really good organization of folks with diverse Christian traditions.  I especially like Acton for its emphasis on promoting what people and local/private organizations might do in response to poverty, as opposed to political advocacy, an approach that refers the poverty problem to government.

The CRCNA could use a bit more of influence from organization like Action, instead of organizations like Sojourners.


Thanks for the heads up on the link, Kristina. The post has been updated.
