The Church in Africa: Prosperity comes from within!
Posted by andreasw on Sep 14, 2010 at 12:10 am
John Paul once said that knowing how to solve poverty and not doing so is tantamount to a moral failure
The question is: What can you do as a single bishop, priest or church leader? I leave you with a few suggestions:
- Continue effective humanitarian aid;
- Demand economic development be done differently;
- Integrate the poor into networks of productivity & exchange;
- Promote trade not aid;
- Invest in local SME companies;
- Participate in or create an SME collateral fund.
Thank you for listening, and allow me to reiterate that for The Church in Africa and everywhere:
Prosperity comes from within!
