Glenn Smith, the Executive Director of Christian Direction in Montreal, Quebec, describes how he made sense of the struggles facing his city.
His story is one example of how the way forward involves careful cultural and social reflection and response. Glenn Smith says that in his many years engaging the culture of his city, he has discovered that "all things religious have been marginalized For Smith, neighbourhood exegesis is a vital first step, and skill, that the church must develop if it is to live out the Mission of God in their specific contexts. Smith lays out a helpful 20 step process to help anyone understand their community and develop their own responsive and transformative action plan. Rather than offer a silver bullet, one-size-fits-all reaction to the challenges facing the Church in Canada today, practitioners like Glenn Smith are offering processes that encourage churches to observe, engage, pray, research and respond to their complex cultures.
