The Canadian Christian Relief & Development Association (CCRDA) is pleased to present a public lecture with Brian Fikkert, author of When Helping Hurts, called “Getting our Story Straight”.
Individuals and cultures are shaped by stories, narratives of what the good life is and of how that life can be achieved. Unfortunately, both materially poor people and those who try to help them have been deeply influenced by false stories that distort both our lives and our poverty alleviation efforts.
The good news is that there is a single true story—God’s story—that is unfolding before our very eyes, providing hope and healing for materially poor and non-poor alike.
