Detroit added a new name lately and that name is Bankruptcy. We are the largest city in the US to ever file for chapter 9 bankruptcy. We have enough empty space in Detroit city limits that the entire city of Paris could fit. Abandon buildings and lost jobs are all over the news.You had me at hello.....

Detroit is a place that is hurting. Jokes have been made at Detroit’s expense like, “The last one out of Detroit, turn off the lights”.

Detroit is a city that is hurting and is crying out for the light of the Gospel.I love playing Monopoly!
