Love Your Neighbor

“‘Love your neighbor as yourself.” – Matthew 22:30

As we face this pandemic, we have an opportunity to love our neighbors….our real neighbors!  The ones who live on our street and in the houses right next to us! 

We are better together and, during this time, we all need the assurance that others are FOR us!  It might be a meal dropped on your doorstep or a smile/encouraging word from a neighbor or maybe a text that asks if you need anything from the store to lift us up during these days. 

Truett Cathy, Founder of Chick-fil-A, once said, “The international sign to know if someone needs encouraging is if they are breathing.  If they’re breathing, they need encouragement.”

So…What will you do this week to be FOR your neighbor?

Here is one practical way:

1.  Print off multiple copies of one of these designs.

2. Fill in your contact information.

3.   Then drop them at your neighbor’s houses to let them know you are FOR them! (Maybe even attach it to a sweet treat!)

On August 26, 2021, IL Governor J.B. Pritzker issued an Executive Order mandating that masks be worn at all indoor gatherings. Although churches are exempt from the Executive Order, out of respect for governing authorities, Parkview has continued to ask staff, leaders, volunteers, and those attending Sunday gatherings to wear a mask while indoors. We are grateful for our people’s understanding and willingness to do so. The Governor recently indicated that his Executive Order will be rescinded on Monday, February 28th making masks no longer required in most indoor settings. In anticipation of that, on Sunday, February 27th Parkview will return to a “mask optional” policy.

While the mask policy has once again shifted, our commitment to your health and wellbeing has not. We remain dedicated to thoroughly cleaning our public spaces before and after our gatherings. Masks and hand sanitizer are still readily available to those who want them.

Navigating these difficult days has not always been clear or easy. Whatever your perspective on current realities, as fellow Christians, let us allow kindness, grace and compassion characterize our interaction and relationships. In the words of the Apostle Paul, “Let us be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.”

I look forward to being with you on Sundays.
Grace and Peace,
