Province IX bishops study self-sustainability in the Philippines
This article from the Episcopal News Service is worth reading by anyone interested in how churches can work with their community on economic development issues. It shows how the church and businesses in the community can work together and both come out stronger.
It also shows the down-side of the “Not invented here” attitude. As this article shows we can all learn from each other. Not only did the Province IX bishops learn much from what they saw in the Philippines, but we in the U.S. and the rest of the world could learn a lot from them as well.
Like the Episcopal Church in the Philippines, we should look for new and unique ways to reach out to, and build the communities we serve.
