How does Mercy Ministry fit into the church?

The next issue of 9Marks is out and discusses how mercy ministry fits into the church. 

Quote to get you started: "Bottom line: the local church, institutionally speaking, is called to teach. That is its job. Lose that, you lose everything. But that institution is made up of human beings who must go and do. And where institutional resources (staff time, budget monies, etc.) are available for something more than teaching, they might be wisely and wonderfully stewarded in helping church members to pursue the good deeds that Jesus commands them to do."
