We live in an amazing community filled with even more amazing people. But life is busy and we so easily fall into habit of keeping our heads down as we walk the dog around the block that we end up missing those around us.
Maybe we will smile and wave if we happen to make eye contact, but we mostly keep to ourselves and our immediate circle of friends. Let’s face it, it’s hard to connect with the people around us and get to know our neighbors.
But, when we look at the life of Jesus we see someone who took the time to get to know people around Him. He knew their names, had good conversations and simply enjoyed being with them. He always seemed to be at a party with people from all walks of life!
WE WANT TO FOLLOW HIS EXAMPLE
This Summer, we are going to be organizing and hosting “Love Where You Live” neighborhood parties all over the Downers Grove area to help us get to know each other better and increase the connection and joy in our communities.
Just look for a “Love Where You Live” sign and join the party…EVERYONE is invited!
