10 ways to build community

Ladies and Gents, spring is here.  With the beautiful weather this morning I was inspired to think of practical ways to build community in the spring and summer time.  God has placed us precisely in the homes, apartments, streets, and neighborhoods where he desires us.  Here are 10 ways to build community in our neighborhoods.

-Leave your house.

-Know and remember your neighbors names, and greet them.

-Plant flowers and a garden.

-Sit on your porch.

-Take children to the park.

-Hire young people for odd jobs (Youth for Hire!)

-Organize a block party.

-Talk to the mail carrier.

-Invite neighbors over for a cook out.

-Buy local.

What are some other ways we can promote community where we live?

Blessings,

Josh
