  8. These are all good. I would add one more: Befriend poor people. Shane Claiborne once took a survey in which he asked, “Do you think Jesus befriended poor people?” Almost everyone said yes. Later in the survey he asked, “Do you have friends who are poor?” Only 2% said yes. He observed that we say we are to follow Jesus’ example, but in this area, most affluent Americans do not.

    I pastor a church that serves a low-income neighborhood and most of our members are poor. Most of our leaders are poor. Our experience has been that most suburban churches that want to partner with us want to (1) give us money and (2) do things for us. When we suggest that we would like to partner as equals, that we would like our suburban partners to recognize that our urban leaders have more expertise on how to minister in a poor urban neigbhorhood than they do, and that they can come alongside and support our urban leaders rather than doing things for them, our “partners” tend to disappear.

    Cross-cultural friendships are the best way to explode the stereotypes that poor people are less intelligent, lazy, and helpless. There is much that affluent Christian leaders and poor Christian leaders can accomplish working together that we could not accomplish separately, but only if we become friends and partner as equals.

    As Íive here In Angola as principal of a Christian school. I know many poor around me.
    And I treat them with complete dignity and teach English and other things about how to cook and how to feed properly the Young.
    I have been living here for 4 years and I am fond of children.
    As my husband needs some medical treatment, we are returning to Brasil In order to do this for some months.
    I hope to return some day.
    And I also read the 40 days book In Portuguese with my 8 disciples. All girls and they love the book.
    And I share some devotional which I receive from pastor Rick every day with the teachers and whoever I have some oportunity to share. I write and give it to the person.
    I thank pastor Rick for sending me this rich material which have helped me and others.

  10. I would add an additional line with regard to the Church purpose statement. (That is made aware to and understood by all church members)
