Soon after I moved to Alexandria, one of our neighbors introduced me to the book The Art of Neighboring. In the book, there is a diagram like the one above. The book invites you to do this: Imagine the center house is your home, apartment, or condominium and the other homes are your eight closest neighbors. How many of these neighbors do you know by name? How many could you write down an attribute for, something you can’t see visibly, like where they are from or what they do for a living? Could you name something deeper about them, like one of their dreams or passions?
This week I was talking to the Welcome Team at Fairlington about this book and they wondered if people could name these things about the five people that sit closest to them at church. How well do we know our “Framily” at Fairlington? How are we welcoming each other and forming authentic community together?
Hope to see you Sunday at 9:30am or 11am.
