What comes to mind when you think about your neighbours? Maybe you don’t know them very well or, if you’re honest, maybe you think the lady across the street is a bit weird. For many of us, it can be tempting to keep our distance and mind our own business in our neighbourhood. But is that really how God wants us to live?
As followers of Jesus, we’ve been called to love both God and our neighbours. It’s easier said than done, but if we push past the fear, time barriers, and pride that can keep us from engaging with others, we can build deep connections with the people in our neighbourhood and, most importantly, please God.
In this 4-session series based on their book The Art of Neighboring, Jay Pathak and Dave Runyon help us focus on the people within our neighbourhood and learn what it means to be a good neighbour. They discuss the importance of pushing through the uncomfortable feelings that come with communicating, investing in, and caring for the people who live near us. What would our communities look like if we took Jesus’s command to love our neighbours as ourselves seriously?
