Sam, writing for “Grace Ground“, is producing a wonderful series called “Getting to Know Our Neighbors.”
Sam describes his purpose in writing this series in the introduction:
We enjoy getting to know neighbors. It may appear to come natural to us, but we make it an intentional part of following Jesus. In this series I will discuss some of the methods that have worked for us in getting to know our neighbors, how we move some of the relationships beyond just being acquainted, and what we’re doing now to move those relationships to yet another level.
Did you notice that he said “intentional”? I think that’s very important.
Sam says that activities as simple as walking around the neighborhood and complimenting a neighbor’s yard can help us begin building relationships with the people who live near us.
I have some good friends who are much better at this than I am. It’s great to have examples like them to follow.
What do you think about Sam’s posts? Are you getting to know the people who live near you?
