Love Your City Project
We love our city, and we bet you love yours, too. But cities aren’t perfect. Layers of brokenness, crime, and poverty exist just under the surface of every town in every nation.
These issues won’t be solved quickly or easily, but through long-term and loving commitment, we believe life and wholeness can be found.
What if there were a way for ordinary citizens and their local government to partner together to bring love to their city? What if this organized project were able to dedicate 200 work hours each month to see their city landscape change before their eyes? What if this were possible? Imagine the transformation that city would experience.
Introducing the Love Your City Project.
We believe that order inspires order and that small acts of love can inspire greater change. We also believe that God has called us to care for and transform the world around us. The organizations comprising ‘Going Like This’ love where they live and have resolved to care for their city.
We’re making small changes to inspire bigger ones–scraping gum off of sidewalks, sharing meals with our neighbors, and planning street art for the walls behind our office.
We invite you to join us. Find a need in your city and meet it, then document it with the hashtag “#LoveYourCity.” We can’t wait to see what we can accomplish together.
Each month we’ll also share stories about how the project is going, what we’re doing to love our neighbors, and how loving our city has helped reshape our block.
