inCOMMON Community Development
December 6, 2010

Our church has partnered with InCommon for many years now. They have consistently connected us to the poor, homeless, and marginalized as our friends and fellow neighbors. No longer are we a church that wants to patronize the poor; we see them as our friends. To me, this is the hallmark of InCommon - building healthy friendships.

There have been many church members who have told me how awkaward they felt to simply sit down and share a meal, a story, a game, and some of life with a friend in poverty. They couldn't hide behind a serving line, passing out food. Each time I hear the story, I smile because I know InCommon is accomplishing their goal.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

many ways: my own life through friendships with the leaders of InCommon, in our church through the small groups that partner with InCommon, in my neighborhood, and more.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

help other buy into the mission - even though friendships are more difficult, they are also way more effective.
