by Rev. Tami Forte Logan
“Giving with CHARITY is just a temporary fix. It is not sustainable. It does not restore the wholeness of that person. It does not build relationship. It does not shift or share power. The status quo is not interrupted. And the dependency of those persons on the benevolence of those in power is always sustained.
It is often this paternalistic or maternalistic relationship between the giver and the receiver that is simply transactional, but there is no JOY, there is no transformation, and it can be so depleting for everyone involved. Of course, it is an EXTREMELY comfortable place for many folks to BE, BUT charity giving is NOT Justice Giving.”
