Ears to Hear and Eyes to See

For the last several months, I have been preaching from the book of regional self-interest about the need to invest in our collective future. I firmly believe in the truth that our region is only as strong as the communities within it, and that if we are going to change the trajectory of St. Louis we need to invest in the communities that have historically been left behind.
