From the beginning God has granted humankind the ability to create and build up, to design and develop order where none existed before. The result of this creative gift is what we know as culture, society and today more than ever before – great cities. However, our cities, as beautiful and productive as they may be, also suffer the consequences of sin. Violence is real, economic barriers arise, and oppression is often present.
On two Sunday in August, the 2nd and the 9th we will spend time in prayer for our cities and ask God to bring about peace where there is violence, plenty where there is hardship, and unity where there are divides. We ask him to make us instruments of peace and reconciliation.
