The Church and The City
There’s a lot of talk about the Church’s role in advancing the common good and restoring society, but it often remains theoretical. In Portland, this isn’t just an idea; it’s a case study. Kevin Palau sits down with Portland Mayor Sam Adams, Commissioner Diane McKeel, and Imago Dei Community Pastor Ken Weigal to discuss their partnership. Witness the impact of a church committed to the common good of its city.
Imago Dei Community has continued to serve their city well. On Wednesday, April 25th, the top three Portland mayoral Candidates were invited to a Civic Forum at Imago Dei Community. It was an opportunity for the faith community in Portland to hear from the mayoral candidates and to continue a valuable conversation. Watch that forum
