Jesus in the Neighborhood
Day 49 February 18, 2013
“We become neighbors when we are willing to cross the road for one another.― Henri J.M. Nouwen, Bread for the Journey: A Daybook of Wisdom and Faith
“Quantity over quality. Work with a lot of something….” -from 365 A Daily Creativity Journal by Noah Scalin
“If we are looking for insurance against want and oppression, we will find it only in our neighbors’ prosperity and goodwill and, beyond that, in the good health of our worldly places, our homelands. If we were sincerely looking for a place of safety, for real security and success, then we would begin to turn to our communities – and not the communities simply of our human neighbors but also of the water, earth, and air, the plants and animals, all the creatures with whom our local life is shared.
― Wendell Berry, The Art of the Commonplace: The Agrarian Essays
