Being on mission with Christ involves so much more than our financial contributions and I was looking for ways to respond to the the tragedy in Haiti that went beyond my giving.

This morning I was reading a post by Eric Foley at Transformational Giving and he pointed me to some ideas posted by Jon Hirst at Generous Mind. It went so much farther than what I wrote yesterday that I thought you might get some more ideas for your own response.

One of John’s suggestions was what I encouraged yesterday,

Give in community. Instead of making giving an isolated effort, give with your family, your church or your work. Transfer some of what you have learned to others and challenge them to action as well.

But he went on to offer 5 more simple ideas about our response to the earthquake. You can read them here.

What about you? Have you acted upon the tugging of the Spirit on your heart.

But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves. – James 1:22 (NLT)

Grace and Peace,

Terry

P.S. I have done a little more research about Haiti and plan to share it with some of those in my circle of influence. I hope you follow through with some actions of your own. I would love to know what you and your groups are doing.
