CFA Executive Director, Jay Van Groningen recommends The Art of Neighboring: Building Genuine Relationships Right Outside Your Door by Jay Pathak & Dave Runyon. Van Groningen says, “This book gives great examples and ideas for folks who are beginning to think about how to become a good neighbor/great neighbor.” Read the synopsis below, and pass on this title to others.
“When Jesus was asked to sum up everything into one command, he said to love God with everything we have and to love our neighbors as ourselves. Most of us have turned this simple idea of loving our neighbors into a nice saying, putting it on bumper stickers and refrigerator magnets and then going on with our lives without actually putting it into practice.”
“What would happen if every follower of Jesus took the Great Commandment literally? Is it possible that the solution to our society’s biggest issues has been right under our noses for the past two thousand years?”
