Kick-off Retreat: Sent to the cities

On the evening of Friday May 29, Jared Wass gave the first TCP Kick-off Retreat talk. He explains that cities are God's idea, God's invention, and God's intention. The world is moving toward cities and will eventually be God's perfect city, the new Jerusalem. He also discusses what it means to be sent to the city and leaves us with four questions to think about: What about the Twin Cities is good? What about the Twin Cities is corrupted? How can it be reformed/how can we serve the Twin Cities? and Why am I here this summer?
