Toxic Charity: How Churches and Charities Hurt Those They Help (And How to Reverse It)

Toxic Charity: How Churches and Charities Hurt Those They Help (And How to Reverse It)

Veteran urban activist Robert Lupton reveals the shockingly toxic effects that modern charity has upon the very people meant to benefit from it. Toxic Charity provides proven new models for charitable groups who want to help—not sabotage—those whom they desire to serve. Lupton, the founder of FCS Urban Ministries (Focused Community Strategies) in Atlanta, the voice of the Urban Perspectives newsletter, and the author of Compassion, Justice and the Christian Life, has been at the forefront of urban ministry activism for forty years. Now, in the vein of Jeffrey Sachs’s The End of Poverty, Richard Stearns’s The Hole in Our Gospel, and Gregory Boyle’s Tattoos on the Heart, his groundbreaking Toxic Charity shows us how to start serving needy and impoverished members of our communities in a way that will lead to lasting, real-world change.

New Online Church Aims to Reach Those with No Experience of God, Christianity or Church

Ripon, England, (PRWEB) July 5, 2007

Holy Trinity Church Ripon has launched an online ‘church’ for people who are not already engaged with the Christian faith, and who are looking for answers, but may not feel ready (or be able) to walk into a church building. Its goal is to help people discover if God is of relevance to them today, providing a safe and self-directed way to find straightforward answers to questions about Christianity. Longer-term, the goal is to encourage them to find a local church where they can feel at home.

Very few churches exist purely online, and Church on the Net (www.church-on-the-net.com) is unique because it is evangelistic, rather than designed to serve believers or any pre-existing fellowship. The team behind the project says that as well as agnostics, atheists and seekers, however, the online church may be useful to new Christians afraid of asking ‘silly’ questions, Christians who have slipped away from an active faith, and those who find it difficult to meet together (such as the housebound, carers, and those in remote areas or who face persecution).

“As odd as it may seem to Christians, who have all the advantages of fellowship through belonging to a traditional church, there are huge numbers of people who are accustomed to being part of online communities, whose ‘friends’ they may never meet face-to-face,” says Mark Tanner, vicar of Holy Trinity Ripon. “The idea of doing things online feels safe and attractive to them, so why not introduce church into that lifestyle?”

Church on the Net is divided into three sections:

· a reference section, with 85 articles offering explanations or perspectives on many issues relating to God, church and Christianity, including common and difficult questions

· a weekly article, updated every Sunday, exploring the Christian faith and how it is lived out on a daily basis. The launch address has been provided by the Rt Revd John Packer, Bishop of Ripon & Leeds

· an interactive community area, where visitors can engage with the site and one another through forums and blogs.

Site content is provided by an editorial panel of ordained and lay people drawn from within Holy Trinity Ripon, plus guest writers.

“In an increasingly secular world, we are in danger of making assumptions about what people already know about our faith — which may not be much,” says Nicola David, project leader of Church on the Net. “This hit home when a teenager asked me if Christmas was when Jesus married Mary. So our articles try to be as clear, conversational and jargon-free as possible — particularly because we expect the majority of our audience to be outside of the UK, and won’t have English as a first language.”

40% of visitors to Holy Trinity Ripon’s own church website (www.holytrinityripon.org.uk) are overseas, and come looking for answers to spiritual questions. Most commonly, these are seekers from China, Brazil, Vietnam, Russia, the United Arab Emirates, Korea, Morocco and Israel.

“Church on the Net is one of a range of ways Christians are extending a new invitation to community, to exploration and to faith through fresh expressions of church. I warmly commend it,” says the Revd. Dr. Steven Croft, archbishops’ missioner and team leader of Fresh Expressions (an initiative of the Church of England and Methodist Church).

Plans are already afoot for phases two and three of the site, which will introduce extensive new functionality and features.

Church on the Net is registered as a fresh expression of church with Fresh Expressions. It exists under the authority of Holy Trinity Ripon (a church in the Church of England) and the Diocese of Ripon and Leeds. It is co-funded by Holy Trinity Ripon, the Diocese of Ripon and Leeds, and charitable grants.

New Book Offers Hope for Those Hurting

Romeoville Ill. (PRWEB) August 31, 2009

Author P. E. Calhoun released his inspirational and informative book titled 7 Facets of God, ways to never feel alone by experiencing God. Self-published under Xulon Press the book was written to be informative while offering encouragement for those feeling alone struggling with depression and anxiety while seeking answers.

When asked why he wanted to write such a book P. E. Calhoun answered, “In times like these, a lot of people feel as if they’re having to take on the impossible single handedly and that’s not the case.” He continued saying, “I wanted to let people know they’re not alone while at the same time showing them how to avoid depression, anxiety and other feelings which make us want to give up hope.”

Considering the government health care debate, antidepressants being engineered chemically to make us feel good synthetically in a society looking to go all-natural and the economy, there is expected to be a demand for the information contained in 7 Facets of God. With a guarantee to show readers how they can tap into an all-natural antidepressant inside their own body, it is expected to be a welcomed read for those experiencing the typical ‘holiday blues’. According to its author P. E. Calhoun, the best part about the all-natural antidepressant in our body is it’s free and works instantly. No more waiting hours or days for the benefits. The only side effect is it’s contagious to others helping them feel good as well.

As we enter September – National Yoga Month – sales for the book, which helps people relax all-naturally, are expected to climb as demand rises moving towards the holiday season. With the increasing divorce rate in a downed economy combined with the government health care plan predicting the demand for 7 Facets of God is difficult while at the same time verifies a demand does exist. 7 Facets of God, a 188 page paper back, also guarantees a bold claim that it can provide its readers with the ability to know how others are talking about them when they’re not around. “With the season offering the most depression and anxiety approaching, people are going to want a better and more effective way to cope. The fact that it also helps people see the way others are talking about them after they’ve left the holiday parties is icing on the cake” said P. E. Calhoun. Readers can order 7 Facets of God by calling toll-free (866) 909-BOOK (2665) or visiting http://www.pecalhoun.com which can also be linked too with http://www.7facetsofgod.com. 7 Facets of God is also available through Barns & Noble, Amazon and other popular book retailers.

New Book Shines Hope for Those in Dark Times

Romeoville Ill. (PRWEB) August 31, 2009

Self-publishing author P. E. Calhoun released his inspirational and informative book titled 7 Facets of God, ways to never feel alone by experiencing God. It was published under Xulon Press to offer hope for those feeling alone and struggling with depression and anxiety while at the same time wanting answers.

7 Facets of God offers insight into a world where peace and contentment is most common. P. E. Calhoun shows how we work, how God works and ways we can be content by combining the two. “If you knew who walked beside you on this path, which you have chosen with your free will, you could never experience worry, guilt, suffering or any other paralyzing emotion” P. E. Calhoun says in the introduction.

When asked why he wanted to write such a book P. E. Calhoun answered, “In times like these, a lot of people feel as if they’re having to take on the impossible single handedly and that’s not the case.” He continued saying, “I wanted to let people know they’re not alone while at the same time showing them how to avoid depression, anxiety and other feelings which make us want to give up hope.” 7 Facets of God, a 188 page paper back, also promises to give readers the ability to know how others are talking about them when they’re not around.

With government health care in the foreground and antidepressants being engineered chemically to make us feel good synthetically in a society looking to go all-natural, 7 Facets of God is expected to be in wide demand. It guarantees to show readers how they can tap into an all-natural antidepressant inside their own body. According to its author P. E. Calhoun, the best part about the all-natural antidepressant in our body is it’s free and works instantly. No more waiting hours or days for the benefits. The only side effect is it’s contagious to others helping them feel good as well.
