We recently came across an article from www.vergenetwork.org on simple ways to engage your community. After just finishing up the Engage series, we thought this was very fitting and helpful! Download the pdf from VergeNetwork for 100 different and simple ways to engage those around you.
Let’s circle a few to do in the next month with intentional purpose. And as encouragement, how of those things on the list are already doing? Let’s be intentional people! Pick one idea and let us know how it went.
WHY WE ENGAGE
“The Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighborhood. We saw the glory with our own eyes, the one-of-a-kind glory, like Father, like Son, Generous inside and out, true from start to finish.” John 1:14 – The Message
How great is it that Jesus Christ, King over all, moved into the neighborhood with us. He came to us. He humbled Himself and came to serve us! He engaged in our world, with us, as one of us. What a mind blowing truth.
And we are called to model after Him. We are called to go to those around us, to move into the neighborhood others, to engage in their world, with them, as one of them.
Maybe these ideas will help stir ideas of your own so that we can be people who, like Jesus, move into the neighborhood and engage with those around us.
