RIGHTNOW MEDIA

THE ART OF NEIGHBORING

DAVE RUNYON

As followers of Jesus, we’ve been called to love our neighbor. In The Art of Neighboring, Jay Pathak and Dave Runyon help us focus on the people within our neighborhood and apartment complexes and learn what it means to be a good neighbor even in the midst of COVID-19. What comes to mind when you think about your neighbors? 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 neighborhood. But is that really how God wants us to live?

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 neighbors as ourselves seriously?
