I’ve been inspired by people like Tim Keller on the importance of urban ministry. Next week I’m off to New York City for Dwell Conference, and I expect I’ll only become more pumped about holistic ministry and church planting within the city of Toronto.
Our Toronto Association of churches is holding an event in a few weeks to begin a new focus on loving and serving our city. If you’re around, come; if not, please pray for us.
The “Love Toronto” theme, by the way, recognizes that love is not always the verb that comes to mind. People love to hate Toronto. It’s easy for our churches to pick up on this as well – but that would be a huge mistake.
Here’s the info for the night:
Motivated by our vision for the City of Toronto, we are calling all Fellowship Churches to join together in a night of worship, challenge, and prayer as we seek the peace and prosperity of our city.
