Visiting My Neighbour
The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
Some of us already have easy relationships with our neighbours; exchanging the proverbial cup of sugar often and sharing our lives together. Others are yet to exchange more than a 'good morning'. Whatever your situation is, we encourage you to take an extra step to love your neighbours this winter, especially your older neighbours.
It begins with prayer, and with wisdom, but hopefully this will lead you to knock on your neighbour's door to offer God's love and ease the burden of loneliness this winter.
We have a few ideas and resources to help you, depending on what your next step looks like.
The Power of One Webinars
Not sure where to begin when visiting your older neighbour? Linking Lives UK run regular webinars where you will hear inspiring stories from individuals, and be equipped with simple but effective ideas to brighten someone else's day. They're even doing a Christmas Special! More info and bookings here.
'I am' Visiting Cards
This is an excellent tool to help you start evangelistic conversations with your neighbours or when visiting in care homes.
The pack comprises a “how to” guide, and 7 individual cards, each with an image, an “I AM” saying Bible verse, and then a prayer on the back of the card. More info and how to order can be found here.
Sharing the Gospel Practically
One of our trustees, London City Mission's Terry Puttick has done some brilliant videos to inspire and give confidence to those of us hoping to share the gospel with our neighbours. You can find the short videos here on our YouTube Channel.
