I just found out that Amazon is giving away e-copies of Jay Pathak & Dave Runyon’s book “The Art of Neighboring” for a limited time. While I have not read this book, I have met Jay several times (he is the pastor of the Mile High Vineyard in Arvada, CO and a new Vineyard USA Board Member) had have found him to be a passionate Jesus follower. As such, I would recommend taking advantage of this limited time offer while you can!
Book Description (via Amazon)
“Once upon a time, people knew their neighbors. They talked to them, had cook-outs with them, and went to church with them. In our time of unprecedented mobility and increasing isolationism, it’s hard to make lasting connections with those who live right outside our front door. We have hundreds of “friends” through online social networking, but we often don’t even know the full name of the person who lives right next door.
“This unique and inspiring book asks the question: What is the most loving thing I can do for the people who live on my street or in my apartment building? Through compelling true stories of lives impacted, the authors show readers how to create genuine friendships with the people who live in closest proximity to them. Discussion questions at the end of each chapter make this book perfect for small groups or individual study.”
