Meet the Neighbors
Getting to Know the Christmas Basket Families
“I shall come to you and I shall stay or even spend the winter with you.
I do not wish to see you just in passing, but I hope to spend some time with you.
A door has opened for me.”
1 Corinthians 16:5-9
As the year winds down and the St. Austin community prepares for a season of generosity with our Christmas Basket Project, it’s a good time to pay attention to the folks on both sides of our door.
For three weeks Meet the Neighbors will open opportunities to learn about poverty and hunger in Austin. Parishioners will see ourselves and our neighbors reflected in the window. Each week you can click for statistics, video links and thought provoking reflections. Week Two: Budget; Week One: Food
NOTE: This educational series replaces the Friday, November 5 Meet the Neighbors event.
When we look in each other's eyes, do we recognize ourselves?
Do we see the face of God?
