Some of things that we have done in the neighborhood have been from very simple street BBQ’s to actually having a block party just so each of us can truly embrace each of our neighbors and get to know them better. It is more than just waving as each other drive by but it is actually getting involved from the heart and reaching out to see what your own neighbors needs may be. One item that has just taken off has been that our next door neighbors husband passed away 14 months ago and each neighbor has taken turns doing the shoveling and yard cleanup. It has come to the point that each neighbor not only will shovel the widows walk but will shovel numerous houses. It seems that the first man that is up after a snow storm just goes out and does it. No one leaves a note saying I did your walks we all just do it. It has been really a fantastic at times you come home and your walks are already done, but my neighbors can say the same thing. I know that this is just a small example but what it really comes down to is getting involved and making that first contact, no one pushes religion but if that door is opened I’ll be the first to engage and try to explain that that is how Christ has chosen me to work in my life and in others, by being a servant.
