Be The Neighbor is a justice-based service-learning trip ministry empowering youth and adults to put faith into action through service and justice in ways that are relational, sustainable and dignity-affirming, and equips groups with biblical, theological, and social tools to make service and justice a way of life. Be the Neighbor trips include direct service, relational ministry, immersion experiences, and education. Participants learn from community leaders, organizers, public policy makers, advocates, and neighbors affected by the injustices they are seeking to address. Participants learn how to be the neighbor, not only through service, but also by learning about root causes and systemic issues, so that they can return to their own communities to serve and work for justice.
Then Jesus asked,
“Which one of these three people was a real neighbor
to the man who was beaten up by robbers?”
The expert in the Law of Moses answered,
“The one who showed compassion.”
Jesus said, “Go and do likewise!”
