Steps to becoming a community that loves its neighbors

Lee Street Church was founded in 1926 by Dutch immigrants who wanted to worship in English. Today, the Wyoming, Mich., congregation regularly includes Spanish to fulfill the vision of its congregants to love their neighbors as themselves. According to an article on the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship website, faith communities that identify and embody a clear intention to fully and completely love their neighbors are more likely to successfully navigate the shift in mindset that makes it possible to faithfully embody their vision. Read or download the article, which includes discussion questions and links to additional resources that can help faith communities identify and embody their intention to love their neighbors. Also see the companion article, “Love your Neighbors: Practice what’s Preached.”
