Hope for the Inner City

Day 3
Session 8
5:05 PM

American inner cities have been plagued by a set of problems that seem intractable. As we study inner-city life, we are often confronted with the same questions: What is poverty? How can we attend to it? And are these even the right questions to ask regarding the condition of poverty? We will explore these questions with both an honest, realistic position and a hopeful outlook. We must analyze the problems that plague the inner city from the perspective of Christian personalism, the entrepreneurial vocation, and simple solutions. What we will discuss is aimed at providing a practical approach to the integration of these vital factors.
