Not In My Backyard
November 3, 2018
November 4 through November 25
How do we find good news in a world with so much bad news? Believe it or not, it might be in your own neighborhood! In a world that’s globally connected and increasingly isolated at the same time, some of the best news we can find is to remember that communities still matter. Neighborhoods matter. Jesus himself tells a number of stories in the gospel that can help us see what it’s like to be good news to those communities and what it means for our neighborhoods to be good news to the world.
When we view our neighborhoods through the eyes of Jesus, we start to see an amazing opportunity to help build communities of good news in a world full of bad news.
These four weeks will challenge us to take big conversations we’re having across our nation and apply them to our own communities. They will challenge us to think differently about our neighborhoods and about how our neighborhoods can change the world.
