Faithful Christian mission includes more than preaching. In his book Where the Cross Meets the Street, Noel Castellanos describes his dissatisfaction with the proclamation-only approach and looks at the life of Jesus for a more holistic way to engage our neighborhoods. He believes in the cross God enters our suffering and cares for the vulnerable, and the Christian's duty is to do the same. This entails moving into the neighborhood, engaging both proclamation and formation, demonstrating compassion, seeking restoration and development, and confronting injustice where it may be found. In this episode, Noel joins William to discuss how the radical story of the cross should shape the Church's presence in our communities.

Noel serves as the President of the Christian Community Development Association.

Christians often speak of this as “our call.” Author and social entrepreneur Jonathan David Golden says we should stop obsessing over missing that purpose and start doing what we can where we are. In conversation with William, Jonathan encourages listeners to consider their strengths, understand their story, and make a difference wherever they may be in life.
