I needed a break!

I needed some time off after our Apr 3/4 CCDA Shalom Perspectives Conference. It was an awesome gathering and a collaboration of groups - yea!... true community committed to modeling love! And, I am anxiously looking forward to what God will do through the seeds that were planted. For many, this was the first time they have ever heard about Christian Community Development and the Association's 8 key concepts... they are listed below:
1. Church-base
2. Presence in the Community(relocation)
3. Reconciliation
4. Listening to the Community
5. Wholistic Approach
6. Empowerment
7. Leadership Development
8. Redistribution

May we consider one another in order to stir up good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching... Heb 10:24-5
