Church Forsaken: Practicing Presence in Neglected Neighborhoods
2020 Calvin Symposium on Worship | Workshop
In this workshop, we challenged local churches to rediscover that loving our neighbors means loving our neighborhoods. Unpacking the themes of Jeremiah 29, we saw how Christians can be fully present in local communities, building homes and planting gardens for the common good. We also discussed on how community stakeholders and civic leaders can rediscover that churches are viable partners in community transformation in ways they may never have considered.
