The Practice of Hope Urban Shalom Summit

« Go back

14 August 2018

Hope is something that can easily go missing in our rapidly urbanising world. As people struggle with day-to-day life, the effects of isolation and disconnection, poverty, unsanitary conditions, unjust economic systems and fast-changing environments, the belief that life could ever be any better begins to fade.

As people of faith we have a mandate and the ability to be bearers of hope in the spaces and places that God has called us to occupy.

The Urban Shalom Summit will be held in the Philippines after the Micah Global 7th Triennial Consultation in September. At the summit, we will explore together how we can practice hope across the sectors of a city and begin to see shalom or flourishing replace disconnection and hopelessness.

Join the conversation! Registrations are open!

About the Summit:

The theme for the summit, The Practice of Hope in the City, reflects that as people of faith we are hope bearers, not just of a future hope that will come, but a present hope that stirs us to be agents of Christ’s shalom in the world now.

Hope is something that can easily go missing in our rapidly urbanising world. As people struggle with day to day life, the effects of isolation and disconnection, poverty, unsanitary conditions, unjust economic systems and fast changing environments, the belief that life could ever be any better begins to fade.

As people of faith we have a mandate and the ability to be bearers of hope in the spaces and places that God has called us to occupy. At the summit, we will explore together how we can practice hope across the sectors of a city and begin to see shalom or flourishing replace disconnection and hopelessness.
