Urban Ministry Conference-- Why It Matters...

According to Dr. Boice, participation is “one of the principles that should guide Christians in their concern for today’s world. For too long evangelicals in particular have been guilty of what is called ‘white flight.’ We have moved from the action, where we have been needed, to where it is nice! Because of our suburban/rural orientation, we have carried the same pattern over into our approach to world missions. We have focused on the remotest areas, while the people in those areas have been leaving them and streaming into the metropolitan environments. I would argue that the greatest challenge to a serious Christian witness today is to establish an evangelical presence in the world’s cities” (J. M. Boice, Foundations of God’s City, p. 166).

If you haven't done so already, please mark your calendar for the Urban Ministry Conference at Tenth— March 6-8, 2009. More details coming soon!

To help you get ready for the conference the list of books that Pastor Tripp suggested back in December have been added to the Chruch library. I plan to have them on the shelf this Sunday. If you have never visited the library we are in C4 in the catacombs (down in the end of the room near the bathrooms) between 10:30 and 11 on Sunday mornings. I would be willing to have evening service hours if I could find volunteers to man it once a month (hint, hint)
