What's the Relationship Between Cities and Work?

Cities require individuals working competently in the service of others to create flourishing--just systems, wealth creation, places for dining and recreating, and a built environment that nurtures positive human interaction. Flourishing blooms through the work of intentional cultivation on the part of every resident.

The city is also the image God chooses to describe the realization for what he intended from the beginning for all of his creation. People of faith care about making cities flourish; it can be traced back to humanity's commission given from God in a garden.


God intended shalom, universal flourishing and delight, and he asked humanity to work with him to make it a reality. In other words, flourishing happens increasingly when we understand cities and work from the perspective of Christian faith.

This site is about leaning into these questions.
