We had our monthly Inspiration Night this week. We kept it simple this time (from the food, to the activities, to this blog!) - inviting neighbors only a day or 2 in advance and keeping the meal basic. Matt made a big pot of rice and beans and a neighbor baked a giant chocolate chip cookie.
As we invited neighbors to Inspiration Night, we encouraged them to help lead. One neighbor said, "I really like it when we go around the circle and share our highs and lows. It is good to hear how people are doing."
My favorite quotes from Inspiration Night:
"Wouldn't it be great if I went door-to-door on our block and asked my relatives, I mean my neighbors..."
"Yes, we sure do know each other well on our block!"
