Keeping Portland Weird

Portland, Oregon’s motto is “Keep Portland Weird.” They have a stated liberal bias, including an annual ‘naked’ bike ride with 13,000 participants.
According to Kevin and Luis Palau, for years the Christian community was disconnected from the social needs of their community. In 2008 that changed.
The church rallied 27,000 volunteers to serve Portland annually in the largest service project ever. The spiritual and physical results have been amazing! The church’s mission became Jeremiah 29:7, “Seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Prayto the Lordfor it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.”
One of the ways our businesses, and our churches, should live out our faith is to seek the peace and prosperity of our own city.
