Cedarview Alliance Church,
“And who is my neighbour?” Luke 10:29b
The conversation between Jesus and an expert on the law had discovered important common ground: Loving God with all our soul, heart, mind and strength, and loving our neighbour as ourselves. These made an excellent summary of the whole Old Testament in terms of human priorities! But the expert wants more – ‘and who is my neighbour?’. Jesus’ brilliant response is best (it provoked the parable of the Good Samaritan!) but suffice it to say: the real answer is far too easily missed.
So let’s not miss it – even today in Ottawa! This Sunday, February 4 th, we have the joy of getting an update from Dylan Armstrong about reaching out to our regional neighbours in Alexandria, and a very local update from Dan Courteau, who is connecting with our neighbours here in Barrhaven. We will then take communion together, remembering Jesus’ mission. May God open our eyes to see our communities as He sees them!
With you for Christ and His kingdom,
