The Urban Shalom Forum: The Gospel and the Future of Cities is a global working gathering of Christian urban leaders and professionals who will form the core base of strategic planners and thinkers in creating sustainable and resilient cities around the world. In 2016 after an extensive 3-year inter-governmental and civil society consultation process, member states of the United Nations (UN) agreed on a roadmap for urban development for the next 20 years. Entitled the New Urban Agenda (NUA), its purpose is to help guide governments, inter-governmental organisations, business, and civil society to respond to the challenges of a rapidly urbanising world, where 75% of the world’s population will live in cities over the next 20-30 years. The purpose of this Forum is for Christian urban and mission leaders and professionals to examine together and address the issues of urbanism in social; business; economical; political and cultural contexts and urban designs, in preparation for the 2nd part of this working engagement which involves the multi-faith communities globally.

1. Out of the 10 inspiring stories of missionaries sent from Singapore, which story do you like best? Why?
2. Do you agree that God has given children a sense of curiosity and a mind full of imagination? At play, they explore the world they live in. The school, the church and the home can provide wonderful opportunities for children to learn about different people and cultures in the wonderful world God has created.
3. How many types of occupations can you list from the 10 missionary stories? Have you started to think about what you would like to do when you grow up?
4. Can you match the missionaries with their occupations? Whether you are a medical doctor or a dental nurse, a pastor or a teacher, a business leader or a community worker, you can serve God in missions using your special interest, talent and training.
5. It is never too early to wonder about life. Many of the missionaries asked questions even when they were young. Some of them experienced bullying, disappointments, unhappiness and even family problems when they were young. They learnt about the purpose of their lives when they started talking to parents, pastors and teachers in church. Do you talk to your parents and teachers about your hopes and fears?
6. Do you realize that God can use your childhood interests, experiences and education to be a blessing to the people around you? Whether it is learning about science, geography, or enjoying the fishing at the beach or making music, it takes hard work to become good at what you like to do. So work hard, play hard and enjoy your childhood.
