As we develop mutual relationships and learn more about each other, we come to know how we can walk more closely with these neighbours even as they strive to walk more closely with us.
Did you know that before and during our recent National Convention I received messages from our partner churches letting me know they were praying for us. That is accompaniment!
Some of us focus more on local ministry in our communities, some of us focus more on responding to global needs. But they are all ways of answering God’s call to love our neighbours as ourselves.
I invite you to take a few moments and consider, who is your neighbour? Consider what opportunities you might have for building stronger relationships with them and lift them up in your prayers.
