My fellows program on urban theology and ministry took me to the city of Philadelphia, the city of brotherly love and also the city of murals. We visited Hunting Park, where the future Esperanza Health Center will be breaking ground. We also checked out downtown Philly, the liberty bell, and even stumbled upon a tea party (the other kind of tea party). There’s so much history in Philadelphia. Enjoy the photos!
