CONNECTED

We are excited to introduce to you our theme for 2020 – “CONNECTED.” We know that anything we do at the Urban Mission is a direct result of others who have felt called to pray and give and serve and care and advocate.

A meaningful term for this is the South African term, “ubuntu,” meaning, “I am, because we are.” The idea of Ubuntu has existed in the oral cultures of Southern Africa since the 1800s, but it took on a deeper,...
