Matthew Watson continues our look at our calling as Christ City Church — to our city of Washington, D.C. — and what that means for us with our neighbors and in our neighborhoods. [Acts 17:24-28; Hebrews 11:9-10, 14-16]
We are called to the city.
Place matters. Because Jesus took on flesh and blood, lived in a neighborhood and identified with a people – we also root ourselves in neighborhoods and identify with people. Our place is Washington, DC. While many come to this city to consume it and to use it, we want to be among those who love it.
Some of us have lived here our whole lives, and this city is our story for as long as we’ve had one. Others of us have come to call this place home. Still others of us are only here for a short while. All of us are learning what it means to follow Jesus in a locale; to be good neighbors; to be storytellers of God’s good news; and to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with God in DC.
