A Summer of Living Local

Max Wiltshire’s question still intrigues me. “Do you fly from Jerusalem, over Judea and over Samaria, to get to minister to the utter most parts of the world?”

Any way you slice it, we need to be more engaged with the work of the Lord in our Jerusalem. All four are important. One is not more important than the other. But it all starts in Jerusalem. It all starts in the place you call home.

This summer our priority is to live local. Be as engaged as possible in your neighborhood. Buy your gas at your neighborhood station. Don’t drive across town for something that is available just down the street. Host block parties. Practice acts of kindness to those closest to your home. Live local.
