Quotable - We apologize for past actions of asking for money without getting your heart"

"We have realized that for too long we have focused on the "professional" mission agencies and churches to get the job done. We now want to release the other 95% of the Body of Christ to join us. In that effort, we want to warmly invite leaders from the Workplace, including the Market Place ministries, BAM (Business as Mission), Business Leaders, and the everyday workplace believer. We are not doing this primarily to get your financial support but your involvement on the front lines. We apologize for our past actions of asking for money without getting your heart and hands in coordination with us first."

Open Letter Signed by: Mark Anderson - President GPN/call2all, Loren Cunningham - Founder, Youth With A Mission and Steve Douglas - President Campus Crusade for Christ

I appreciate their sincere apology. It's been a long time coming. Unfortunately there is too often a spiritual arrogance that seeps into those who feel they are doing "God's work" at the practical exclusion of those who are merely "supporters". Hate to say it, but this is a cousin to the attitude Jesus found so reprehensible in the Pharisees. I pray this is another brick taken out of the wall that so erroneously separates the "sacred" and the "secular". Blessings to those who are taking the wall down.
