Urban Planning Series: An Ideal Environment for the Gospel

We’ve been talking about the legacy of urban planner Jane Jacobs, who described city people as those with “eyes on the street” who “know each other and yet welcome strangers all the time.” To me, this sounds like the folks in a local urban church, people who know and watch out for each other, and yet welcome new folk all the time – an ideal environment for the Gospel!

Urban Planning Series: Learning to Appreciate the City

It is important for students of urban ministry to know Jane Jacobs’ work because she is an advocate for the city. She helps us have a positive attitude towards the city, our neighborhood and its streets, which is essential if we are involved in urban ministry.

Jacobs writes about having a positive attitude toward a city neighborhood using the example of Boston’s North End, which she says was originally built “to house the flood of immigrants first from Ireland, then from Eastern Europe and finally from Sicily.”

Urban Planning Series: Learning in the Laboratory of the City

For the next four blogs I’d like to talk about the urban planner, Jane Jacobs. Her ideas greatly influenced how we thought about ministry in the city. Doug and I were first introduced to her classic 1961 work, The Death and Life of Great American Cities, in the mid-sixties when we moved into Boston’s South End. At that time, the South End was considered to be the worst slum in the city and faced the threat of being demolished by urban renewal in order to build new “luxury” housing.
