LOVING OUR NEIGHBOR
April 7, 2020 | Pastor's Corner
Community is essential to us as Christians. We are the Body of Christ, and we know that when two or more gather in Jesus’ name, he is present with us. So it may be a bit harder for us to handle the “social distancing” happening in our communities.
Our call to community is not only the context of our church but also our neighborhood community. How do we literally love our neighbor? How can we be witnesses on our streets?
One way is to regularly check in on our neighbors who may be vulnerable and isolated. Offer to deliver groceries or other items for them or to run other errands so they won’t have to risk infection by leaving their home.
Be a positive, calming influence in any online neighborhood communities. Don’t spread rumors or hysteria, but find ways to support each other through the crisis.
