A Fishing Analogy

What are the ministries or activities that you and/or your church have done in response to poverty in your community? 

Take time to list the activities and/or ministries that come to mind, and then consider the analogy below.  The purpose of this analogy is to answer the question:  What is Community Development?

We suggest it is a rich mix of activities and programs in EACH/ALL of the six categories.  The right mix is the mix that a community decides is best for them.

One Response to A Fishing Analogy

    My only problem are with #6 and #4 in the analogy… My preference would be to invite them into the pond where fish are taken care of rather than trying to fight against the constant sabotage. Our pond-caretaker and owner has a different way of doing things than in the other ponds.
