I don’t even need to say this but I will.
Loving our neighbour is about doing the right thing, masks, registering and immunisation! If you have done this you are doing a great job of loving your neighbour. If you want to go above and beyond can I suggest checking out what a couple of congregations are doing in their community.
Eastwood Uniting Church is writing chalk messages in their community, they even have them written in different languages!
Willoughby Northbridge has set up a community care parcel box outside their church, they even got a lovely letter of thanks from one of their neighbours!
Willoughby is also letter dropping postcards with little treats to let their neighbours know that are thinking of them and available if they need anything.
Ellie Elia at Glenbrooke has been making a community garden made up of people from her community! She also used her chalk but to make a community prayer labyrinth for people to walk.
Recently in my community, I made a whole bunch of origami peace doves and hid them all over the community, with a sign at my local shops to explain. So as I offer peace to my community, I offer peace to you and yours too.
