Vision of the City is dedicated to exploring a compelling question: “In light of what the gospel tells us about ourselves, those around us and the world to come, what attitudes and values should we bring into civic life and political conversation?”
You won’t find a prescription for legislation to support or candidates to endorse here. Instead, people of all creeds will hopefully find kindling to spark thought-provoking, edifying discussion about the Christian narrative and what it means to engage civic culture in a uniquely Christian manner.
