The PRAY4CHICAGO PROJECT: A Chicago Spiritual Map — We’re working on drawing up a “spiritual map of the city” a wiki website devoted to learning the city of Chicago, seeing it as a mission field. In each of Chicago’s 77 neighborhoods, we share our gut feelings, prayers, conversations, community wells and photographs. It is a research project, but its also an on-ramp for people interested in doing missions in Chicago! Please pray with us for God’s peace in this city!
Chicago Research and Reflections — a series of posts on Chicago from the eyes and heart of yours truly. From serious missionary research to the mundane!
Chicago links I’ve compiled for your heart’s content: Chicago housing, transit, non-profit organizations and more.
This short e-book is a fascinating journey into the mysteries of the universe and the issues of everyday life. Kent is offering this book to all interested in learning to explore a better way of life. Also, check out The Centered Life.net for more ways to connect to others finding this book helpful.
