In a time of mass urban migration, the great irony of our age is that the closer we have come together the further we have moved apart. Within this globalizing world the gap between rich and poor grows ever wider, creating seemingly unbridgeable chasms between people who inhabit the same city. It is against this backdrop that Colin Smith explores what it might mean to create a different kind of narrative where these gaps become redemptive spaces, open to new possibilities. Mind the Gap weaves a rich tapestry of stories from Nairobi along with London and Cape Town. These imaginatively combine with reflections from Luke's gospel to chart possibilities for hope in the heart of the divided city.
