The statues erected at the heart of a community—in a downtown plaza or at a major intersection, say—so often reveal the heart of its residents, their hopes and longings. In our second viewer-created film (made in response to our monuments video), J. R. Briggs takes us on a tour through the center of Lansdale, a suburb of 16,000 on the north side of Philadelphia. There, two monuments echo the longings of the people at Mars Hill, who honored the unknown God without knowing his true name (Acts 17). As you watch the film, from Joel Limbauan, consider how your own neighbors might be longing for the true God, seeking to see his will be done in your city as it is in heaven.

Pastor J. R. Briggs discerns spiritual longing in his city's monuments.
