Toxic Charity

Summer Book Club with Refugee Resettlement

Wednesday, August 14, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. in the Houston Room

As the parish continues to reimagine community engagement, come join us in reading the book Toxic Charity: How Churches and Charities Hurt Those They Help, and How to Reverse It. This summer Refugee Resettlement is reading the book by Robert Lupton, who founded DC Central Kitchen (https://dccentralkitchen.org), about how to walk alongside and empower people and communities in need. In his book, Lupton asks, “Is it about the redemption of the giver, or the liberation of the receiver?” Join us as we explore this question in the context of St. Martin’s ministry in the community and beyond. We invite you to read the book and join us for conversation.
