Flourishing in Troubling Times Seminar

Chennai, India

During the last two days Compass ministry launched a  three year Stewardship and Generosity Campaign for the nation of India. The Compass team (Richard Samuel, Johnson Samuel, and myself) equipped over 35 trainers to take the message of becoming financially free in order to serve the 1.2 billion people of India. Most of these trainers have been volunteering with Compass over the last four years and some for 12 years.

People in India across all economic classes are having increasingly more disposal income and access to consumer credit than ever before.  We are asking God to unleash a movement of generous living and giving in India. Such a movement can become a reality if we start living out the Biblical message of stewardship, generous living and Kingdom focused giving through every aspect of our India society.

The core of the project is to conduct 100 training workshops each year for three years throughout India with a goal of 60,000 impacted directly. The workshop will initially disturb and also begin the training process, but it will be the 6-12 week small groups where people develop life changing stewardship habits. 

The ultimate goal is the free people up financially in order to take the gospel to the nation. The time is short and the window of opportunity is now. “We don’t choose the times in which we live, whether good or bad, we do choose how we spend the time given us, whether short or long.”

Our Lord finds our desires, not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.”   C.S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory

1 Timothy 6:17  “Instruct those who are rich in this present world not to be conceited or to fix their hope on the uncertainty of riches, but on God,who richly supplies us with all things to enjoy. Instruct them to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, storing up for themselves the treasure of a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is life indeed.
