Building communities of shalom requires a humble commitment to the hard work of transforming the brokenness of community structures, practices, laws and human behavior. In that "the earth is the Lord's and everything in it," we must work to see God's reconciling grace make all things new. This workshop will define strategies through which urban revitalization and adult learning and empowerment services can be successfully merged to yield thriving communities and broader life achievement for all its residents.
