International Outreach

Presentation Videos

CHA has developed two NEW video resources to help your organization consider its international outreach activities, with specific attention to:
  • Being neighbor – particularly now when scarce resources and unending need make reality very unlike that of the Good Samaritan.
  • How the call to this work is part of a tradition—a tradition that includes the need for cultural competence.

“The Heart Which Sees”: On Being Neighbor

By: Ron Hamel, Ph.D., CHA senior ethicist (retired)
What: Explores the Biblical story of the Good Samaritan and takes viewers through a theological reflection of this story and how it relates to today's realities, particularly in international outreach.
