Resources for Neighboring


Neighboring happens when we affirm the dignity and worth of every person as they are, not as we want them to be. It’s choosing to be present with people in their strengths and their struggles whether that person lives across the street or across the city. In our greatest moments of triumph or hurt, what usually marks us most is who stood by us (or was absent).

Neighbors choose to build bridges and stand with others because if that’s what Jesus did, so do we.
