Dr. Eric Law of the Kaleidoscope Institute was the main speaker for ACS 2013.
introduced the concept of Holy Currencies
for creating ministries that are missional AND sustainable.
also talked about the three degrees of influence each of us has: friend of a friend of a friend.
In the evening Communion Worship service, Eric Law
used the story of the miracle of the feeding of the 5000 as the scripture text.
noted that the world tells us that there is not enough, so we must take and keep the resource to ourselves.
However, in his
proper Hong Kong family growing up, he
learned that it is better to have less than the other.
proposed a different sort of giving challenge for a church.
He proposed that instead of the church spending money on itself or some particular church ministry program, that each member of the church be given $20 with the instruction that each person must spend that $20 at a locally-owned business or businesses that contribute the most to the community.
