Seeking the Welfare of the City

The more I learn about Tim Keller as a pastor, the more I am impressed. I really want to know more about this guy. I’ve watched several videos where he engages the skeptics and agnostics. His style is so incredibly well formed to his setting.

Some thoughts here on ministry in the city.

In an urban setting like my own (just a few million less than New York City), I think these three proposals are good ones:

1. We should develop appreciative attitudes toward the city.
2. We should become a dynamic counterculture where we live.
3. We should be a community radically committed to the good of our city as a whole.

We are here to live a dynamic faith in a dynamic world. We are not here to curse the darkness. We are here to bless the city.
