Reply To: What is one tangible way that you plan to exhibit Hebraic leadership in your own neighborhood after taking this course?

Samuel Lowry

After taking this course I feel conflicted to respond in 2 ways, regarding how I engage my community, more so in my own neighborhood. First, I need to be more intentional about building the “community” within my neighborhood. Even though I feel very blessed to be in the neighborhood I am in, I do not really “know” my neighbors. I only know my next door neighbor, and that’s because they are an older couple always outside cleaning their front porch. A Hebraic Leader understands that we were meant to be in community and in connection with one another. If it does not exist, I need to be a part of the solution to create it.

A Hebraic Leader also expects and affirms the diversity of beliefs and ways of life. As I work to build the community, I need to remember to first lead with love, and guard my heart from beliefs that may be completely contrary to my own. I need to respect them, listen to them, and make them feel loved. When we first establish a connection of mutual respect then we can can easily share what are beliefs are, in hopes of establishing a seed for them to come to know Christ.
