I have a confession.

When Jesus talks about being a neighbor to others, I am not sure I really understand what he is talking about. I mean, I hear what he is saying and yes, I understand him, but as I look at my life, I am not sure it really looks like the life of someone who loves my neighbor.

I like to be around the people I already know.

I like to be around the people I already know who look and act and think like me.

I like loving my neighbor when I get some reward for doing so—at the very least, recognition of some sort.

I like loving my neighbor when I have a few minutes of free time and do not have to go too far out of my way.

I like … well, you get the idea, I think.

This Sunday evening, June 3 at 5:00 pm, we will gather at the South Plains building to wrestle with how best to love our neighbors.

Will you join us?

More importantly, will you come ready to share the stories you have of loving your neighbor and through that, help us all love others more?
