Ghost Stories :: Local Pain, Local Hope is the second in our series of Empire Remixed events. If you recall, last time ’round we met with a Lord Bishop who lives in a castle in a land far-away. This time we’ve invited a man living in intentional community, ministering in inner-city Philadelphia.
On May 27, 2007, Empire Remixed is pleased to welcome Shane Claiborne to engage with local leaders working along Toronto’s margins.
Jacqueline Daley (Toronto Community Housing), Joe Abbey-Colborne (Parkdale Neighbourhood Church), Michael Blair (Toronto Christian Resource Centre) and Phyllis Novak (Sketch) will all tell stories of their ministry amongst and alongside the marginalized in Toronto.
In poetry and prose, in art, drama and music, we will join together in support of those already engaged in urban ministry in this city.
And as we interact with these stories of pain and stories of hope, we seek inspiration as we seek to live out our call.
“Seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you,” Jeremiah relates, “for in its welfare, you will have your welfare.” (Jer 29.7)
