FBO Land

by Rose Marie Berger, Duane Shank | May-June 2001

A game of faith-based organizations.


FBO LAND is a game of danger and opportunity that can be played by organizations and ministries of all faiths offering effective social services. Strategy involves knowing when to be a service provider and when to be a prophetic interrogator. To win, you can't let your commitment to service blind you to the need for social transformation. Read Isaiah 10 and Matthew 25 for further instructions.

Place your cursor on different parts of the gameboard to discover the promises and perils of FBO Land.

Sojourners Comment Community Covenant

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)

I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Sojourners staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments. (Proverbs 18:7)
