Would you like to go meet the neighbors? The gospel calls us to love our neighbor, and we know that means all of God’s children, but it’s difficult to think about people, much less love them, when we know nothing of their lives, their hearts or their history.
A Trip of Perspective is an opportunity to spend eye-opening days with people who may not have material things but, spiritually, are rich people. In spending time together, relationships are born and nurtured. And knowing someone, caring about someone, changes the way we see anything that affects them, from the weather to international policy. On a Trip of Perspective, you will see through new eyes as we make cross-cultural connections between faith and money.
How are our trips different?
A Faith and Money Network Trip of Perspective is different from most faith-based group trips. It’s not a guided group tour, though we do experience the beauty and richness of the local area. It’s not a mission trip; we’re not there to “help” someone. (There is nothing wrong with helping, of course, but that’s not the purpose of our trips.) Our trips are a chance to step away from daily routines, spend a week living with and forming relationships with people in a community here in the US or another country—people who don’t have societal power and privilege but have spiritual riches and richness of solidarity. We get a new perspective on the reality that we are ALL connected and part of the same human family. We form relationships that bridge extreme gaps and discover what piece each of us is called to carry to help heal the gaps.
