Flourishing Communities Workshop (Boston)
February 20 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm ESTFree
Through his research and engagement, his collection of stories gathered from dozens of churches, and his work as a pastor in Tacoma, Eric Jacobsen helps provide a framework for what it means to be an embedded church. How will churches become (or remain) faithfully present in the neighborhoods we gather for worship? In what ways can our present challenges create unique opportunities to develop a deeper sense of belonging within our communities? These are the conversations and questions that bring us together for a day of connection, encouragement, and a greater love for our city on a hill.
Topics include: Built Environment, Urban Renewal, Faith & Work, Economics, City Planning and development, The Bible, Christ & Culture.
