Friday Photos

The great urbanist Jane Jacobs observed that the presence of children in the city is a sign of urban health.  She was echoing the prophetic words of Zechariah who pictured God’s salvation in the earthy terms of a safe city: “The city streets will be filled with boys and girls playing there.” (Zech. 8:5).

That’s one of the reasons we’re raising our family in the city, encouraging other families to take the same adventure.  I love the thought that simply the presence of my kids on the sidewalks and streets of the city is a witness, a little icon of God’s renewing work.

Which makes this photo a favourite.
