THE WAREHOUSE

The main group I am working in partnership with is called The Warehouse. This wonderful community exists inspire, equip and connect the church to be a transformative presence effectively addressing poverty, injustice and division. They work with local churches in both rich and poor communities, helping them to implement sound, effective and practical acts and renewed attitudes, to see transformation in their communities. www.warehouse.org.za

 

“One prevalent belief that hinders authentic community is the assumption that poor people cannot help themselves… In defining poverty, a portion of that definition should include poverty as “the inability to change circumstances,” not the inability to help oneself. ” – Heuertz, ‘Simple Spirituality’
