Preparing for the "reasonable accommodation" hearings in Quebec, Glen Smith of McGill University put it this way:

Glenn: It's so good to hear all your voices out there.

Special Closing Prayer time for Glenn Smith and his work/ministry & family
...
Introduction of Glenn Smith:
Glenn: It's a pleasure to have our special guest today, Chairman of Board of Regents at Bakke Graduate University, Executive Director of Christian Direction in Montreal since 1983. He serves as Professor of Urban Theology and Missiology at the University of Montreal, and lecturer at McGill University in Haiti. He has written the French version of Hope for the City and God in the City with Ray Bakke and Andre Pownall. He also has authored, Following Jesus: God Invites us to Transformative Discipleship, Our City/regions. He has a new title coming out soon: City Air Makes You Free - To Transform Your City through a Fresh, Biblical Hermeneuntic. Dr. Glenn Smith, Senior Associate for Urban Mission for the Lausanne Committee on World Evangelization, we welcome you.

Dr. Smith was temporarily absent (problem with FreeConferenceCall.com from Canada) A voice suggested we go to Plan B. Glenn left the call to contact Dr. Smith.

...
(Since we have two Glenns on the call, for the sake of clarity, we will refer to Glenn Barth as Glenn and Glenn Smith as Dr. Smith)
...
Glenn: We have Glenn Smith on the line. It turns out that FreeConferenceCall.com has a problem with Canadian callers. I had to patch him in on a 3-way. Glenn, you missed a glowing introduction. Welcome to the call. As we get started today, share a couple of definitions of key terms with us. How do you define the words, city and urban? Dr. Smith: That's a really good question to get into this conversation about transformation.
...
Dr. Smith: If you go on www.direction.ca go to the English side, home page, right side, click on it.
...
Glenn: It's clear you followed a process that began with What are the 4 key areas in a city we want to understand, and then lay out a baseline that we can measure progress against. Those four areas, Church and reconciliation, (gospel of reconciliation) 2 is the urban sphere, the context in which the church exists, as well as 3 - society and 4 creation. Then you interviewed people in those areas to come up with those 12 indicators what would indicate a transformed city.. That's a beautiful model you have laid forward. Your process, what you are teaching on the phone is we don't just imitate, we emulate, and try to understand indicators that would make sense for our city.
Dr. Smith: I think that's well put. Obviously urban geography has played a big part in our work. Some have done graduate work in urban geography.
...
Glenn: Focus on common cause and focus on community. That's so helpful.
...
Dr. Smith: They are being influenced by functions.
...
Dr. Smith: Great.
...
Jarvis: Who will have the first question for Glenn Smith?
...
Dr. Smith: We're very intentional about that.
...
Dr. Smith: The best way is to make sure you do your meetings in the evenings.
...
Dr. Smith: The four circles represent a paradigm on how to understand culture through a certain lens.
...
Dr. Smith: Oh, boy. That's a great question.
...
Dr. Smith: We'll do a 10 year evaluation and we will ask where the indicators need to change.
...
Dr. Smith: We've not had a problem on that end.
...
Dr. Smith: We're always open to that, but because I teach, I do a course once a year and a lot of people come in for that.
...
Dr Smith: We work a lot with social service agencies, so that's an easy link for us.
...
Dr. Smith: Equity in economy, infrastructure housing, public transportation. That's kind of our big one.
...
I would encourage folks to email Glenn Smith to get the document. It's 22 pages with the bibliography, a good description of what this is about, and will help us look at our own ministry and dialog with stakeholders in our ministry. Are there specifics we can pray for you today?
Dr. Smith: Two things. My wife has just gone thru a traumatic time with the death of her father, so continue to pray for our spiritual sanity as we go through headaches and heartaches of losing a loved one. On the Christian Direction side, I would ask you to pray for our work particularly in three parts of Montreal. This fall has been an exceptional time of ministry, and when things go well, it creates extra work - and when they don't go there is extra work. Pray that God will keep us, for good health.
Glenn Barth led in prayer for God's kingdom values in the cities where we are, and for Dr. Smith.
