Bringing Shalom* to the City : Bringing Shalom* to the City Mission to North Philadelphia: 2008-2010 *Hebrew: peace, completeness, welfare: implying restoration and renewal Slide 2: Greater Philadelphia Mission Field Slide 3: 8th St Community Church Spirit & Truth Fellowship CRC Logan Hope Home Hunting Park Logan Our Neighborhood : Our Neighborhood Population by Race : Population by Race Predominantly Puerto Rican Predominantly Cambodian In the Suburbs Poverty Line : Poverty Line 45% of Hunting Park residents live in poverty. 53% of children in Hunting Park (<18) live in poverty. 2 < 1 3 < 1 Slide 7: The 2008 U.S. City Of Death is Philadelphia… …estimated at about 1 murder a day. 406 homicides in 2007 In 2006, 154 young people between ages of 18 and 24 were murdered Slide 8: Most incidents of gun violence are in the poorest neighborhoods 25% of all Philadelphians live beneath the official poverty line The drop-out rate at Philadelphia public high schools is 45% 33% Urban/Suburban Gap Slide 9: The urban poor are almost completely cut off from the wider society and yet are oppressively controlled by it. The poor are victims of such power, and as victims, often turn to victimizing one another. Generally, society blames the poor for being poor, but such blame focuses on the effects, not the causes. James 2:5 Listen, my dear brothers: Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and to inherit the kingdom he promised those who love him? Luke 4:18-21 The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor.“ Then he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant and sat down. The eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fastened on him, and he began by saying to them, "Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing."

At the present time your plenty will supply what they need, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need. Then there will be equality, as it is written: "He who gathered much did not have too much, and he who gathered little did not have too little.” Slide 17: And then I remember… Sometimes I get overwhelmed being here…
