The City Vision team had a great time visiting the House of Lords recently to join Lord Nat Wei, who chairs The City Vision Advisory Board. It was an opportunity for key city leaders from across the City Vision network to meet Dr Ed and Ruth Silvoso from Transform Our World, (TOW). Ed’s book Ekklesia is a game changer in thinking around city transformation principles; he and Ruth are based in Silicon Valley, California, USA, so it was wonderful to meet them in London as they received the tour around the House of Lords by Lord Nat Wei. Lord Wei has been closely associated with TOW for many years.
Ed shared some key principles around city transformation together with paradigm-changing challenges to those leaders who were present from across church, business and marketplace ministry in one of the committee rooms in The House of Lords
It was an opportunity for Tony Hodges, City Vision founder to also share something of the heart and vision behind City Vision and for the partnership with Transform Our World to be strengthened as Tony and Ed/Ruth enjoyed lunch together.
All those present were left inspired by Ed’s input, as well as stories of transformation shared by Tim Dunnett from Bethshan Church in Sunderland. Tim is also the UK director for TOW.
What a huge privilege to have been there and to have been able to pray for our government, peers and MP’s alike.
