For the past few days ten of us have been participating in a conference on global affairs – geopolitical and economic trends and what they mean.  Topics range from China’s Grand Strategy to Cyber Security to the Fintech Revolution - and the people gathered for the conference have been equally fascinating as they range from business and financial executives to academics to government policy makers around the world.


The conference is not a “Christian” conference but the relevance is no less real.  How we understand our faith and step redemptively into the realities of today’s world depends in part on how well we understand the world we are supposed to be stewarding and blessing.  As Christians we should be able to contribute to its flourishing in tangible ways and in every sphere.  It is, therefore, encouraging to see how the young professionals with me process these sessions in this light.

Lord Michael Hastings, head of Global Citizenship for KPMG and member of the House of Lords (UK), spoke to us at a private morning session on the importance of anchoring our careers and lives around our purpose – the purpose we have as God’s children and His stewards, made in His image.  His own life in education, business and government are a testimony to how that can work.

A few ways in which this works out in New York and DC:

New York 

We’re still finalizing community groups and the mentoring program – for personal spiritual development and community they’re great options to take advantage of.  Just let me know if you need more information on either of these.

On a social note we have our annual fall kick-off yacht cruise around New York harbor on Saturday afternoon, September 29.  Check here for more information and to register.

Washington DC

We were delighted to host our first Christian Union DC salon on Tuesday, September 25 with Mark Rodgers, founder and principal of The Clapham Circle, speaking on, Christ, Culture and Clapham.  The conversation was around the theory of social change pursued by William Wilberforce and Hannah More in their efforts to "reform the manners" of late-18th c. England.

Thank you for your ongoing prayers, participation and support of CU Cities.  We’re encouraged with all that we see with our eyes, and in the knowledge that so much more is taking place beyond our sight in both the spiritual and physical realms for God’s glory and His kingdom.
