Today I am reminded that, when asked “Who is my neighbor?”, Jesus answered with a story that told of being a good neighbor. We have literally poked our hind end into these nice peoples’ back yards and it seems to me the first order of business is quiet discretion. I’m not sure this looks like that, from their perspective.
But so far we’re friends with Mike and the other neighbors have said a warm ‘hello’, and I call that a good start. That parking lot belongs to Hope Lutheran Church, De Pere, Wisconsin, where Rev. Wesley ‘Bo’ Baumeister is the pastor. He is off to a family wedding this week and I am glad to be able to fill in.
