Urban Edge: Spring 2017

Myths We Believe:  “A myth is a complicated and powerful thing. Often it is a belief in something that defies logic…” What myths do we believe about others?  We’ve changed our newsletter name! We decided to generate a name that was a little more reflective of what we want to accomplish in our writing. Our goal is to invite our readers to walk a little closer to the edge in terms of wrestling with issues and themes that create tension. Our staff live in this tension every day; and, about 7 years ago we came to the conclusion that our readers were smart and willing to be pushed to consider root causes of poverty and to get a little mud of their hands while they do so.  We want to move you from where you are, to where God wants you to be – one step closer to the edge. The edge really is a place where you have the best view of things to join us on the journey into the hearts and homes of the youth we love. Join us on THE EDGE!
