In Luke 10 - the Parable of the Good Samaritan - at the conclusion of His teaching, Jesus asks, “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”
“The one who had mercy on him," was the reply, to which Jesus said, “Go and do likewise.”
"How do we show mercy to those around us and thereby neighbor well?" is the question we're asking God to answer as we host a series of training events, lecture series, conversations and Sunday sermons. These events are scheduled throughout the year, and we invite you to prioritize them and to participate.
We began our "Neighboring Well" series (and subsequent conversations) with a lecture entitled "Race, Injustice and Kingdom Reconciliation," in which Steve Sudworth shared his story of the things he's learned about race and injustice over the past few years. Audio available below.
