City Transformation: External Identity
- Pray for how the Dept. of Defense* views our city and our local military operations, particularly Fort Carson, as they make decisions about the future of those operations here.
We have recently prayed about our internal identity (how we see ourselves), but this week as C-SPAN’s 2014 Cities Tour is exploring Colorado Springs, we are praying about how others outside of our city see us. Our city’s external identity has many facets–some positive, some not so positive, some deserved and some not so deserved. We want our city to be ultimately viewed as God sees it.
He will not judge by appearance
nor make a decision based on hearsay. Isaiah 11:3
*El Paso County is in a competition with other high quality Army Posts across the country to keep troops here in Colorado Springs (a possible reduction of up to 16,000 troops at Fort Carson would potentially have a dire economic impact to everyone in our community). As part of this, the Army is doing a Supplemental Programmatic Environmental Assessment (SPEA) for their current Force 2020 restructuring plans with a request for community input.
