Worship, prayer and meditation interrupt the world’s cycles of brokenness. Tyler Sit, the author of “Staying Awake” and pastor of New City Church, describes how these practices brought disruption to Minneapolis in the wake of the uprising and Derek Chauvin trial.
Rev. Tyler Sit is the church planter of New City Church, a church that focuses on environmental justice. He is a lover of Minnesota (when you live in Tennessee you don’t hear that often), a United Methodist pastor, and the son of a Chinese immigrant. Tyler has lived on four continents. He has formal training as a prison chaplain, community organizer, and social entrepreneur. When he is not at New City, you’ll find Tyler wandering around the Mississippi River.
The church he is a part of, New City, has been featured in the New York Times, The Atlantic, Minnesota Public Radio, and more.
AND, Rev Tyler has a new book out: it’s called Staying Awake: The Gospel for Changemakers. It’s packed full of practices for people who want to make a difference for good in the world.
