As mentioned in our last newsletter, our chapter has completed our report on poverty, “In Search of a Better Understanding of Poverty.”
During our 2009-2010 study on poverty, our chapter attempted to better understand the challenges of poverty. Poverty is a complex issue and our understanding of its root causes, contributing factors, and ways to alleviate it is incomplete. The paper is a reflection of what we learned from speakers, documentaries, our experiences, and other resources addressing issues associated with poverty. It is not intended to be a comprehensive work. However, it can be an effective guide to help our members embark on an action plan to be in ministry with those living in poverty.
The report is available on our website, http://swtmfsa.wordpress.com/
