Description

How do those called to serve the economically poor—people almost always pushed to the margins of society and often systematically exploited by those with influence and power—find the strength to do so? How do they follow after the model of Christ who also experienced times of soul-wrenching distress and grief?

How does one cooperate with the ongoing work of spiritual formation? What practices and habits help this process of transformation? What role can local communities of faith or Christian development NGOs play in enhancing the spiritual formation of members and staff?

These are but some of the questions addressed by this compilation of essays, originally written as part of the Master of Transformational Development (MTD) program at Eastern College Australia. Here, the authors share their personal experiences of how they wrestled with such questions, and testify that ones capacity to “do justice and love mercy and walk humbly with God” requires a God-nurtured resilience.
