John Piper and True Mercy Ministry

We've talked about mercy ministry on the blog before (here) -- it is first and foremost gospel ministry. But you'd expect missionaries to say that, right?

It might be surprising to find that a sociologist's research actually supports the view that gospel ministry does more for a society than acts that are traditionally considered mercy ministry. John Piper has done a much better job of discussing this research than I can -- I recommend you read his post for yourself.

20schemes is all about bringing the gospel to a group that desperately needs this good news -- the poor of Scotland. And we do this through planting healthy churches right in their midst. But we can't do it alone -- we need both goers (church planters and other gospel workers) and stayers (churches and individuals to partner financially and in prayer). Will you help?
