Are you an Ambassador for Christ in Your Neighborhood?

Guest post by Bailey T. Hurley   My husband and I spent the last two years building friendships with our neighbors. We are at the point in our relationship where we get each other’s mail when we are out of town and have coffee once a month together.

Loving Your Actual Neighbors Podcast with Asherita Ciuciu

Have you ever heard the audible voice of God? The closest I've ever come was an unforgettable moment when He directed me to look out my window at the women around my home. Recently I shared on my friend Asheritah Ciuciu's podcast how this was the beginning of The Neighborhood Café, a simple way to start a neighborhood Bible study. We also talked about practical ways we can get to know our neighbors better with the goal of loving them well. Asheritah also prayed a beautiful guided prayer for...
