Across the world there is a trend of people moving into the city. We are seeing the effects of this growth in racial issues, educational problems, violence, the rise in housing prices, and so much more. In the midst of all of this, we see in Acts chapter 8, that the central message of Christianity, the Gospel, speaks life into a changing city. In this message I want to answer two questions: Why the city? How does the Gospel speak life into a changing city?
