We have been hosting a Sunday Potluck at our home for the past 5-6 years. It is our humble attempt to cultivate community in our neighborhood. We had a wonderful time last night getting to know a new couple who recently moved in to our neighborhood. There is just something that happens to relationships when you share meals together over a period of time. They cannot help but drop down into a deeper level. Perhaps it becomes a second chance to be part of an extended family. Maybe it is just that you have time to get to know each other and develop trust.
If you have been feeling like you would like to get to know your neighbors better, perhaps you could begin a Sunday Potluck in your neighborhood. If every week is too much maybe you could try once a month to get started. If you do, I guarantee you will begin to feel a deeper connection to the place where you live. You will also enlarge your life by the people you invite in.
