Why International Development?


Dear WCIU Colleagues and Friends,

In the 1960's and 1970's in the USA it became common to ask whether Christians should be concerned about things like poverty and justice or only focus on so-called spiritual things like evangelism. That led to questions probing the scriptures to understand why and how we should be concerned for such things.

WCIU has focused our entire effort on international development. Why?

I want to draw your attention to THIS RECENT ARTICLE in the WCIU Journal (that link should take to the page directly). In addition to the article itself you will find another link to a 60-second whiteboard animation that Beth Snodderly wrote, "Why Should Followers of Jesus Care about International Development?"

I encourage you to follow the links, digest what you find, and also feel free to share with others widely.
