Jesus commanded us to love our neighbors as ourselves. The truth is, our neighbors are local and global. They may look like us or they may be very different from us. We may speak the same language or have difficulty understanding one another. We may share common experiences and situations, or we may have completely varied experiences and situations.
None of these variables, or any other, changes the mandate that we are to demonstrate God's love as his hands and feet in the world.
At SBCC, we are disciples who are about Changing the World, be it one person at a time or an entire village at a time; next door or across the world.
