Who is My Neighbor?
“He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” Luke 10:27
Cultural Awareness Week is January 11-15, 2016
We are in a new environment–a new “neighborhood”–at THQ. Our address has changed. There are familiar faces. But, like any new neighborhood, there are many new things to explore and many new neighbors to meet. Who are these neighbors? What are their names? What do they do? Where are they from?
Each of our neighbors has interesting things to share; each has a different background and experiences. Some of our neighbors take us from the local to the global. Some of our neighbors can take us on a trip around the world! That trip may open our eyes to new and wonderful things. It may also take us to places that are torn by strife, by war, and mass migrations. Pray for these neighbors and for these neighborhoods.
During Cultural Awareness Week (Jan. 11-15, 2016), you’ll have the opportunity to meet a few of your neighbors, hear their stories, and even experience their foods. Take the opportunity to get to know your neighbors a little better, have a cup of coffee/tea with them, or share a meal.
WHO IS MY NEIGHBOR? Program resources are available for worship and programs.
