Responding to the needs of our neighbors has always been a key vocation of the church. Martin Luther believed that service of the neighbor should be a priority for every person of faith. He wrote, “Therefore, we should be guided in all our works by this one thought alone—that we may serve and benefit others in everything that is done, having nothing before our eyes except the need and advantage of the neighbor.”
In the parable of the good Samaritan that sets the theme for “Who Is My Neighbor?” Jesus makes clear that “neighbor” is not an abstract concept but rather a radically new relationship made possible by God’s reconciling grace. To be a neighbor is to be in relationship with the people God places in our midst, to both serve and be served by them.
K-5 VBS this year will look a little different as we will be taking the Good News of God out to our neighbors in the Madison neighborhood. What better way to show our neighbor how much they mean to us than by going to meet them where they are at? All First Lutheran kids are encouraged to come and make new friends as we celebrate “Who is my neighbor?”
