  1. Laura, that question from Berry is is one of the important ones for me too. Berry, though questionable in many areas, has really helped me in this one. It is easy to be arrogant as a Pastor and think in ideals rather live with real people in a real place. Real people always have names. Real people’s needs are effected by choices. Where I live I can purchase much of needs locally, from people I know. You know what? You dont pay as much attention to price when the money is going to friends and neighbors. You don’t comparison shop. Saving $.50 almost becomes immoral when you know the person whose pocket it comes out of. Hmmm. Thanks for pointing this one out. Its got me thinking again.

    Robert,

    I’ve been thinking a lot lately about neighborhood, as can be seen in some of the posts of recent weeks, and have discovered a distinct lack of intentionality in my own practice and in the ministry I help lead. The quote from Berry further stimulated my thinking and it’s something I’ll be bringing to my fellows for dialogue: how do we do this as a faith community and as individual persons?

    Thank you for posting the list.
