Do we have a positive theology of the city so that an urban spirituality can emerge from this place?
We have for too long focused on quick fixes, pop up churches, and strategic solutions which have left us malnourished and emancipated, yet bloated from our over-consumption of these unsatisfying approached. Spiritual formation is something that we need to pay closer attention to today. How so we live this kind of holy life in the city?
"Urban spirituality is a contemporary expression of Jeremiah 29:7 'Seek the welfare of the city... for in its welfare you will find your welfare.' It reminds us how our own spiritual lives and the spiritual life of the city are interwoven, inviting us into a way of life that watches for God's work in ourselves and our city. It dares us to trust that if we let ourselves be transformed by the way God is at work in our city, we may become the message we so desperately long to share with our neighbours."

"Books focusing on a missional form of spirituality are relatively rare, so when Karina's book came out we were excited. This book does not disappoint - it is an outstanding exploration of spirituality and sustainability for people involved in tough, urban, contexts."
- Alan and Debra Hirsch, founders of Forge Mission Training Network.
