Take & read: Practical theology

Friendship at the Margins: Discovering Mutuality in Service and Mission, by Christopher L. Heuertz and Christine D. Pohl. This book is part of the Resources for Reconciliation series, which pairs field-based practitioners with academics. Together Heuertz and Pohl explore relationships between people in dire need and those who seek to serve them. Such relationships, despite the best intentions, often become problematic, even manipulative. Drawing on experience and the biblical story, the authors show us another way.
