What started as an effort to clean graffiti from a pedestrian walkway in La Coruña, Spain developed into a “tapestry of relationships” among neighborhood residents, politicians, members of a local church plant, a mission team from Covenant Grove Church in Modesto, California, and local graffiti artists.
After cleaning the graffiti, they all joined together to beautify the walkway with a mural. Vida Nueva Covenant Church sponsored the multi-day event as a means of promoting reconciliation among locals and “illegal” graffiti artists. The church’s witness has grown as it has worked on the walkway, organized discussions, and developed relationships with the teens. They continue to serve with the community, not just for the community.
