The series is intended to help us rethink our abstract ideas about poverty – that it is not just a lack of material / financial resources. We can all be living in a state of poverty.
Session 1: Poverty of Being
Big Idea: Poverty of being is not “them” it’s all of us, and to minister to the impoverished without hurting we need to be poor in spirit.
Session 2: Poverty of Community
Big Idea: Poverty of community is when I only have relationships with people who are like me. Biblical community reflects “every tongue and tribe and nation” as it will be in Heaven.
Session 3: Poverty of Stewardship
Big Idea: Poverty of stewardship is when I’m not using my gifts and talents and resources to serve others. I need to serve the poor in ways that help them serve others and not just be served.
