Holistic Compassion Ministry Training: July Labs: The Demonstration of Compassion & Confrontation of Injustice

Love Out Loud wants community members to be involved in service that they are passionate about - but to also be fully aware of the contextual framework that we step into. 

These training labs are deeply encouraged, open, and free to all. 

Holistic Compassion Ministry Training labs are part of our Pathways Growth sessions, designed as part of our Pathways process to assist community members in taking a step back from serving and walk through a process of personal assessment, contextual growth, and engagement before serving in order to plug them into service opportunities that fulfill the center of who they were created to be. By partnering with Community Organizations we are able to help provide these Growth Sessions to you.

Pathways literally helps people find their passion - find their purpose - find their place.

Building upon the previous lab will continue cultivate a theology of compassion rooted in the costly grace of Jesus. This lab will include a powerful exercise that helps us work through the ways in which unconscious biases shape our interactions with marginalized communities & how understanding the “imago dei” is critical to overcoming these issues. We will provide examples of ministries that effectively transitioned from a relief focus in their compassion ministries to an empowerment paradigm.

 

Confrontation of Injustice

In this section we will seek to recover the very biblical old & new testament theme of “justice”. We will work to form deep awareness of  structural/systemic injustice & the historical trauma that communities who have suffered through it carry. Finally, we will unpack biblical examples of communities that organized themselves for the faith-rooted confrontation of injustice. We’ll answer questions about how compassion ministries should by all means be not only be aware of, but also be actively seeking ways to creatively overcome legacies of oppression that impact the day-to-day lives of those they love & serve.

Barefoot Mile

NC Barefoot Mile Flyer (1) - Tammy Craven.jpg

When you commit to raising funds for a Barefoot Mile, you commit to changing the life of a trafficked child, teen or young woman. Through the Barefoot Mile you will raise much needed awareness and funds for JOY International and Street Light NC , a local organization providing resources and support to women in crisis, especially those in the adult entertainment industry. JOY International works to rescue, restore and reintegrate children, teens and young women who have been victims of sex trafficking. JOY also tirelessly works to not only bring awareness to, but actively prevent the sexual exploitation of children domestically and internationally. 

Every Barefoot Mile represents a community's commitment to walk in solidarity with trafficked children, who so desperately need someone to stand on their behalf.
Precious children, teens and young women will be rescued as a result of every single walk. Each and every step is a step toward freedom. Join us in the fight for JOY in each of these precious lives.


http://www.thebarefootmile.org/sponsorship-opportunities
Log onto the website or text BFMNC to 71777

The walk will begin and end at Winston Square Park
Parking is free in the larger First Presbyterian lots
Registration/check in is at 9 AM

Proclamation & Formation

Thursday, June 28, 6:30p - 8:30p

Led By: Terrance Hawkins, Holistic Compassion Ministry
Contact: serve@loveoutloudws.com
Sign Up HERE

The intro session will cover what I call “the great divorce” between social action & spiritual renewal or evangelism in churches & make the case that a “whole Gospel” requires that we reconcile & wed these two approaches into one vibrant witness. We will wrestle with how we as the community of Jesus are to be formed individually & corporately by God’s love to winsomely proclaim Good News to the poor. 

Demonstration of Compassion-

Grounded by Jesus’s mission statement found in Luke 4 & the parable of the Good Samaritan we will dialogue about the biblical theme of concern for the poor & vulnerable, the call to eliminate human suffering,  how paternalism perverts our demonstrations of compassion, & develop sensitivity to the conditions of marginalized communities through a poverty simulation exercise. We will walk participants through an assessment of their current posture in the community & also help practically distinguish the differences between relief & empowerment ministries.
