STRENGTH in DELICACY 

Photographer: Ida Kaastra-Mutoigo, World Renew Executive Director, Canada

At the WEA Conference in Jakarta last year, Spiritual Care Teams, consisting of people from many countries, prayed with delegates and speakers. These teams believed in the power of prayer to positively change situations, attitudes and to prepare delegates and speakers to have an even more dynamic encounter with the Lord, His Word and His people at the Conference.

Strength in delicacy

LOVED not CURSED

Photographer: Accessible Hope International

Women with disabilities, previously believing God had cursed them, listening to Scripture together and discussing God’s love. This image demonstrates the flourishing of women with disabilities who were previously isolated, alone, and dishevelled. They believed they were worthless and treated themselves as such. They believed that God had cursed them and didn’t want them. Now they live in community. Their relationships with their families are being reconciled. They are hearing about a God who loves them, and has a purpose for them - and a purpose for their disability. 

Loved not cursed

POCKETS of OCEANIC HOPE

Photographer: Linda Martindale

While swimming early one morning in a local tidal pool I met a woman whose eyes sparkled as she spoke with passion and joy about the life within the pool, life that I had mostly not noticed. From sea slugs to anemones to starfish, she introduced me to the ‘locals’ with whom I was swimming. She has been an advocate for the City to not clean the tidal pools with chemicals because of it what it does to this sea life, and has brought about change that means this starfish is alive and well. A seemingly small action showed me something significant – she is creating change in a small part of the world with her passion, knowledge and advocacy. Sometimes when I think nothing will change, I remember her – and how she is making change in a small way with excellence and impact. It reminds me that we must all do what we can, where we can, with passion and knowledge, and see things change, in big ways and small.

Pockets of Oceanic Hope

AFRICAN JOY

Photographer: Guy Stubbs

This photograph has always impacted me with questions. The little girl in the photograph is full of joy. Yet if one takes a closer look at her clothes, it becomes evident that they are threadbare and well worn. If one views the picture from a secular worldview, the question is asked how the girl can be happy even though she appears poor. And she was very poor. She was an orphan living with her sickly granny in a small hut that kept on collapsing due to the rain. But when speaking to her, I realised that she had hope. This picture reminds me that poverty is not necessarily just physical, it is emotional and spiritual. And when there is hope, physical poverty can be overcome. 

African joy

FLOURISHING EARTH

Photographer: Guy Stubbs

Flourishing Earth – when people work the land, good things grow. In our projects, we focus on helping people with little hope - people who are enslaved to manipulative dependency. Freeing transformation takes place when a person realises that with God's blessings they can change their own lives. The woman in this photograph has realised that the gifts given by God of resources, relationships and abilities have enabled her to transform her life from dependency to dignity.

Moving from Aristotle to Jesus: Growing into a Flourishing Global Community

Daniel W. O’Neill

Individual flourishing cannot be seen in isolation from public flourishing, the common good. Human flourishing cannot be seen in isolation from planetary flourishing – and none of these can be fully acquired in the absence of cosmic flourishing.


Flourishing as a concept has Aristotelian and other ancient transcultural roots, has been informed and enhanced by Judeo-Christian theology, has been increasingly adopted in many modern secular professional disciplines, and can be observed to be a consistent universal goal throughout human history.

This paper proposes that the preservation and rediscovery of this principle as a common good is a reflection of God’s intentions for creation, redemption and consummation. Healing serves as the divinely-directed process by which flourishing is obtained. Moving beyond popular Aristotelian concepts of eudaimonia, healing serves as a goal (telios) of the people of God who pursue the Source of flourishing in the supremacy of Christ.

The beautiful multifaceted Effect of Compassion on Human Flourishing

René Mally 

“Compassion” and “flourishing” are two themes that have been on the author’s mind for quite some time. Thankfully, Micah Global has been at the forefront of highlighting both themes through their conferences and global work. Through the article, the author wants to underline in particular that God’s mandate of a life of compassion has multiple benefits, not only for the one who receives, but at least as much, though in different form, also the giver. This truth is laid out in scripture, rediscovered by psychology, and confirmed through personal experience of the author, mainly in Peru, Myanmar and Belgium, and more recently in Papua New Guinea.

Does Integral Mission include everything that God requires of us and does God

Kingdom Flourishing & Land Rights 

Viv Grigg

Those societies that have clear land rights and simple processes of adjudication most rapidly utilise the wealth base of society and flourish (De Soto, 2002). Ownership is the foundation of some just aspects of Capitalism. Flourishing through capital formation as a normative life process for a disciple is not easily done unless one can buy their own home and land.

A call for epistemic justice and equality on the journey towards wellbeing and flourishing.

Helen Harrison

This paper relates to research regarding an exploration of the epistemology of wellbeing, through an international cross-cultural interrogation of the concept of wellbeing. Epistemology is an account and reasoning of knowledge and understanding. From a social epistemic perspective knowledge is constructed through interactions, testimonies, trust and social decision-making.

COMO FLORESCER EM MEIO A ARIDEZ?

Sérgio Ricardo Gonçalves Dusilek1

Alguns anos atrás, estava na estrada a caminho de Juiz de Fora (MG) para uma aula do Mestrado. Era a estação de poucas chuvas que coincidiu com uma inesperada estiagem. O resultado? Mato seco que facilitou a propagação de queimadas. Durante alguns quilômetros, então, o cheiro de fumaça me acompanhou na viagem. Ao lado e ao longo da estrada, tudo queimado, até que aparece uma árvore florida, preservada em meio a devastação à sua volta.

Trauma Healing - Deaf Perspective

Eiji Matsumoto, Jose Irish Pascual, Pastraporn Sarakong, Soung Yein, Uiko Yano and Yongwhan Kim

What this sign?
The first part of the sign shows trauma is something that impacts our minds, creating memories that we relive over and over again. Trauma also pierces our heart and the impact causes us emotional pain. Now that you know the meaning, can you understand the sign? It is the sign we use for 'T-R-A-U-M-A'.

Community Led Development: Self Help Group Practices in Nepal

Prem Singh Shintan, United Mission to Nepal 

Given the failure of top-down initiatives to bring about community development (CD) in many developing countries, attention is switching to bottom-up approaches, one of which is to use community-based organizations (Okeke-Ogbuafor, Gray & Stead, 2018). The Self-Help Group (SHG) has been increasingly viewed as an instrument of women’s empowerment and incorporated as a key programmatic strategy in various women development initiative (Radhika & Banumathy, 2019).

Also in Nepal, one of the least developed countries (LDC) in the world (United Nations, 2013), SHG formation and mobilization of women groups are one of the common approaches considered by NGOs /INGOs including other development organizations.
