This month we continue our quarterly theme, “Love Never Fails” in which we look at loving others in ways that may push us to grow and expand our comfort boundaries. Last month we talked about reaching beyond our personal comfort zones to love the family, friends, and neighbors in our immediate vicinity. Now, we look at the opportunities we have as congregations to engage our local neighborhoods and communities.
As we enter the time of year that includes holidays and family gatherings, why not take it as an opportunity to reach out to those in need of His love? Let’s explore the ways in which we and our churches can address in loving ways the unique needs and challenges that are present in our communities.
