Dear Faith Family,
When my boys were little, they loved roaming our neighborhood on Halloween night looking for houses that still had the front porch light on. The lights seemed to be this universal sign that we were welcome to approach and that there was still candy available. Of course, there was always the poor couple that forgot it was Halloween and didn’t realize that the lights were like a bat signal in the sky indicating free candy!
This Halloween, we want to flood our neighborhoods with light. We want to throw a bunch of small parties in our front yards as a simple way of engaging with our neighbors. The parties don’t have to be elaborate or complicated, but we do want them to be intentional. We envision our front yards as being a place that is conducive to meeting people. We’d love there to be lots of lights, simple yard games, lots of free candy, and maybe a grill with hot dogs or free drinks. But, these are just some ideas!
One of the biggest barriers to loving our neighbor is that we just don’t know them. We want to begin to change that pattern! On a night where many will already be outside in the dark, we want to be a tangible light in our neighborhoods. You can help! For more information, please click here!
You are loved!
PS. Don’t forget about our Quarterly meeting and reception for Rob Hartland this Sunday at 4:00 PM.
