"Remember The Poor" is the one thing the apostle Paul was asked to do by the leaders of the church in Jerusalem as he went on his missionary journey. For the Vineyard movement, caring for the poor, the marginalized, and the socially vulnerable has always sat at the center of our kingdom make up. Help your congregation understand what it means to create community with, and among, the poor – as they hear from others who have taken Jesus at his words.
Part of The Distinctives Series: These first five booklets in the Series, with reflections from over 25 different contributors from around the Vineyard, will connect your congregation with key ideas central to our shared Vineyard mission.
