Connection to the world opens up avenues of service to others. It is the point of contact with the hurting world. It is loved expressed and lived out to those outside the church family. Connection to the world in service opens up the possibility to become the hands and feet of Jesus in the world that surrounds us. While it does include our work in foreign missions its greatest point of contact is in the individual’s “world” of everyday life.
It is symbolized by the hand reaching out in service to others and includes volunteer work done by people on their own and church organized opportunities to touch the hurting world with the love of Jesus.
