THE GOSPEL AND THE FUTURE OF CITIES: A CALL TO ACTION
Today we are releasing The Gospel and the Future of Cities: A Call to Action statement at UN-Habitat’s 9th World Urban Forum (www.wuf9.org) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia where we have been attending and participating. As witnesses to the enormous spiritual, social, economic, and environmental challenges posed by today’s rapidly urbanizing world, where the world’s population currently living in cities will grow from 50% to 70-75% within 20-30 years, the intent of the Gospel and the Future of Cities: A Call to Action statement is to motivate and activate the whole church to more deeply understand, love, and care for cities and their inhabitants from God’s perspective, and to become better equipped and effective for urban presence, ministry, work, and witness.
