Urban Jungle

Urban Jungle

Passage: Luke 4:14-30

Speaker: Dr. Steven Laufer

Series: Into the Wild

Category: Sunday Sermons

For Christians living in urban America, the host of systemic problems that need attention is myriad. All manner of community leaders and citizen activists work from the inside to try and improve difficult systems, and many Christians work professionally in those areas. But every follower of Jesus has the opportunity to invest in individual people affected by urban problems, be they poverty, lack of education, racism, job loss, mental illness, substance abuse, or any of the others. Sharing the gospel with people like this means walking with them over time and demonstrating the love of God and the truth of the Gospel by helping them find their way out of systemic or generational dysfunction and into the wholeness of life intended by God.
