for the city


Suppose we truly want to see our city transformed and, ultimately, our world. In that case, we must take the Gospel, in word and deed, to all people—the familiar and unfamiliar, mainstream and marginalized, disengaged and unengaged. If we are going to engage both those in regular proximity to us and those in our city, we must be intentional. We must plan it, prepare for it, and strategically create times to saturate our city in prayer and the presence of believers. We have to put in the time, work at it, and work at it together! This will require the giving of ourselves and the loving of others in our city as we engage our area in the city.
