KellyGram – Know Thy Neighbor

 

 

For years now, I’ve followed the Episcopal daily devotional book Forward Day by Day, and I was inspired to write this week’s KellyGram after reading Wednesday’s meditation on what it means, quite literally, to “love your neighbor as yourself.” Many of us don’t take the time to get to know our neighbors, yet there are many reasons why neighborly relationships are invaluable. The author of this passage participated in a program through his church that focused on what it means to be neighborly and challenged participants to make an intentional effort to connect with their actual neighbors. The devotional encouraged Forward Day by Day readers to do the same, starting with learning our neighbors’ names.

I live in a small enclave of about 25 homes and am fortunate to know my immediate neighbors very well. I am sorry to report, however, that I’ve done a poor job of getting out and meeting some of the neighborhood’s newer residents. Clearly, COVID is somewhat of a limiting factor when it comes to meeting new people right now, but I’m going to take this devotional to heart and work on building relationships with my neighbors in the coming months. I invite you to do so also, and reap the rewards of knowing thy neighbor!
