It’s An Art Form

I have had great neighbors and bad neighbors, and people have probably said the same of me.  We have a choice every day about what kind of neighbor we will be, the choices we make about being neighborly have the ability to generate something beautiful.

Jesus was asked, “Who is my neighbor?” His answer suggested we seek out and demonstrate hospitality to those whom we would normally avoid, minimize, and rationalize away as being different.

In this sermon series we have begun, The Art of Neighboring, we have the opportunity to intentionally step beyond our sphere of safety to take the risk of investing in a relationship with someone else as a neighbor.

Each of us are either struggling, or know someone, in our neighborhood who is struggling to make sense of life. We know Christ brings us hope in the midst of the struggle.

I hope you will make an effort to be present each weekend of this series so we can together learn and practice the art of neighboring right where we live.
