‘Love Your Neighbour’ … Jesus put it with ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart’ as the summary of what the Law was all about. But what does it mean to ‘love your neighbour’ in the inter-connected world of 2017? It’s core to all we do in our life, and expressed in our Newtown Mission life through the Jordan Cafe & Community Care Centre locally, but what does it mean as we relate to the wider world?
Our themes for Sundays connect with the Creative Conversations events at Annandale in late September, where we look at what it means to be good neighbours as Australians who are connected to the wider world and want to give a ‘Fair Share’. How do we live out Jesus’ words in that context? There’s a focus on Foreign Aid, Refugees and Climate.
