Last Saturday morning, I woke up to the shouts and shrieks of children playing in the park below our apartment. Confused and a little annoyed, I shuffled sleepy-eyed to the window to see what the commotion was about.
During this time of global pandemic, if there is a word worthy to underline – and which brings to light thousands of people’s selfless commitment to risk their lives and serve unconditionally with their time and resources – it is the word generosity.

“Unity is the quintessence of Christianity. Christ called everyone to be in unity, and he even gave us the example to be united just as he is united to the Father and to the Holy Spirit. Therefore, when we talk about Christianity, we [must] talk about unity.” - His Eminence Ignatios, Bishop of Demetrias (Volos, Greece)
El Camino de Santiago (“The Way of Saint James”) is an ancient pilgrimage dating back to the 9th century. A shepherd was believed to have found the remains of Saint James in a nearby field, so a local bishop ordered a cathedral to be built on the site. Twelve hundred years since that day, thousands of people have journeyed to the sacred church in Santiago de Compostela (Spain) from various starting points across southern Europe. Although most pilgrims today travel the Camino for reasons other than a religious pilgrimage, many find the trek to be a deeply spiritual experience.
Under the Spotlight highlights and explores cities in Europe where spiritual influencers are transforming their communities for God.
“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” (Psalm 46:10, ESV)

The group - normal people, given unique abilities and new eyes with which to see the world. The city - their own. They have been charged to take the city for the Kingdom of God. Alone, they saw many problems. Together, with hope and purpose, they can change their world.
