    If you have some spare time, this is an issue addressed from Rev. Kyle Borg, that I haven't previously heard addressed.

    Available Here.

    Oh, it get's addressed here and there. That's a fine presentation, btw. One of the code phrases you'll here is "planting churches in centers of influence". That indicates a number of things. On one hand : 1) Moneyed population 2) Lots of white folks 3) who just might be embarrassed at being born "white". On the other hand, it can also indicate an obsession with SJW types of issues, which often, sadly, indicates the demonstrably false idea that cities don't have churches already. I respect T. Keller for staying the course in Manhattan, although I disagree with him on a few issues. But some in the PCA talk as if Redeemer was the first church Manhattan ever had.

    A disclaimer as I’ve never read this book but some works in cities have it painfully difficult.

    I’m surprised this book hasn’t been banned from amazon.

    Being a city boy, for the most part, I can attest to that statement. And some churches have been pounding the pavement in those arenas long before the PCA new they existed.
