February 22 to March 22 we will be focusing on the topic of urban poverty. In addition to Sunday morning services, daily reflection journals, small discussion groups, and service projects will be made available. Here are some promises we’re making to you. During these 30 days…
- you WILL learn some things about urban poverty that you didn’t know.
- you will NOT be made to feel guilty. Guilt is not the emotional response God is looking for.
- we WON’T treat a complex issue simplistically. We don’t pretend to have all the answers.
- you WILL be given practical opportunities to make a meaningful difference.
We would love for you to help us wrestle with this huge topic. Come asking God to stretch you!
Proverbs 31:8, the theme verse for this series, along with its companion verse 9, kept me in law school when I forgot why I was there:
“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,
for the rights of all who are destitute.
Speak up and judge fairly;
defend the rights of the poor and needy.”
