3 Questions ...

An article I wrote about getting to know the neighbors around your church was just published over at the EDOW site. Check it out and let me know what you think:
"During the summer of 2013, I met with four parishes near Dupont Circle to start an experiment in getting to know their neighborhood. Like many of our congregations, these parishes had been nestled in their neighborhoods for over a century. While these congregations continued worshipping together, rooted in an age-old tradition, the communities outside their doors had changed dramatically!

In preparing for our time together, they realized that too many of them were not in touch with the realities of their neighborhood. No longer did they know the influencers, local business owners or officers patrolling their streets. They realized they couldn’t proclaim or celebrate what God was doing in their communities until they did something new. So, they did. They joined me on a walk."
