Seven Billion and Counting...

The world's population will reach seven billion during 2011.

What does that mean to you? National Geographic magazine has a great article in the January issue that will give you something to chew on.

For example, take the world's largest cities. In 1975 only 3 cities worldwide topped ten million in population. Today there are 21 such megacities, most in developing countries, where urban areas absorb much of the globe's rising population.

Large cities = large problems = large opportunities.

What will the church's response be?
