Pursuing the Lost As I reflect on my desire to be a part of a Multicultural Urban Ministry, I realized that I want to leave a legacy of passion on pursuing God. A pursuit that is so prevalent, that it is known without it being spoken. In Deuteronomy 4, we are reminded of the blessings that are promised to us through the obedience of our ancestors.
