Solidarity, mutuality and accompaniment are vital to our relationships with international partners. But what do these terms mean?  How can relationships of solidarity be realized in a world of vast imbalances, poverty, violence, and brokenness?the very conditions out of which many people in the U.S. and around the world encounter God’s presence and mission in the world?

Restoring Dignity, Nourishing Hope: Developing Mutuality in Mission is a new resource, produced by Global Ministries, to assist and guide churches as they seek to answer these difficult questions.  Issues such as partnership, advocacy, short-term mission trips, community development, evangelism and interfaith dialogue, and fundraising are addressed.  Each chapter contains questions for study and reflection as well as suggested resources for further engagement. Most of the contributors are Global Ministries’ partners or mission personnel who have had the privilege of living and serving cross-culturally. 

We are called to serve alongside sisters and brothers in a very uneven world.  Living in mutuality where we all can learn and share is difficult.  Our hope is that this resource can help us all to walk in solidarity with others towards a more just and peaceful world.
