Playing Together is a Good Thing
Kenton Anderson writes a good blog today about the possibility of playing together. The Covenant Church is initiating a campaign to bring malaria nets to Congo children. That's a good thing. There is another initiative that collaborates with the NBA, airlines and other companies to do the same thing. Do we need to do this alone or can we get more kingdom impact working with others?
I've gotten myself in a little hot water on this topic because of our ecumenical work with World Vision the the four churches (Roman Catholic, Episcopal and Presbyterian along with Covenant) do. There was little encouragement or celebration that we worked with others because, it seemed to me, we were not contributing through Covenant World Relief.
It would be a great Covenant Companion piece or series about the ways the ECC already does collaborate with other NGOs around the world and what collaborative initiatives are on the horizon.
