Jesus didn’t stay home waiting for people to come to him. He traveled to where they were, and when he got there, he paid attention. He really looked at people. He listened. He noticed when they were sick or hungry or overwhelmed or lost and he responded with compassion; healing the sick, feeding the hungry, telling everyone the good news of God’s love. Jesus said that all the commandments boil down to just two: love God with all your heart and soul and mind, and love your neighbor as yourself. At Blue Ridge we believe that loving God means loving our neighbors, both here in Greene County and around the world. We believe God calls us to go out into the world with our eyes, ears and hearts open; to pay attention, and to respond with compassion.
