“Everybody has a worldview typically revealed by how and what we do. The ‘obvious’ is revealed by a kid stealing your car or Mother Teresa’s work in India. The ‘not-so-obvious’ perhaps by how a country conducts its airport screenings. It really has a lot to do with how you value humans. Is the beggar an embarrassment or an eternal being made in the image of God? The Colson Center’s Centurions program was an ‘Aha!’ experience for me. I’d not realized my own worldview inconsistencies. Today, Oklahoma City sees Christian leaders stepping up in greater strategic unity to seek the welfare of our city (Jeremiah 29). We seek consistency in our collective ‘Christian’ worldview. Humans should flourish better because God’s kids are in town. How about your city?”
