What if We Knew Our Neighbors?
10:00 - 10:25
Remember the days when we'd send our children out to ride their bikes for hours, just waiting for the street lights to come on? We knew if something happened to them, our neighbors would call.
We live in a time when our neighbors feel more like strangers. What would happen if the basic idea of knowing your neighbor returned to the culture of our lives?

What if Faith Had a Seat at the Table?
