Amidst the heartache of millions of Americans being effected by great loss and tragedy due to Hurricane Harvey comes the heartening pictures and accounts of everyday people emerging as good neighbors. From water rescues, to dry places for shelter, to warm meals and so much more, the spirit of the good neighbor is alive and well.

I am grateful that in the Dallas Metroplex our community leaders are mobilizing to do our part.  Mayor Mike Rawlings said, “We’re getting to be the neighbors and friends of south Texans that we know we can be. Our job is to be ready when and if we need individuals to come to the Dallas area to reboot their lives and get back on their feet…My heart goes out to them”

Find out how you can be a good neighbor to Houstonians and those effected by Hurricane Harvey by connecting with Public Good, a network of doers, people who want to make the world a better place. Their goal is to make moments of inspiration into inspiring action. They want everyone to be able to make a difference and encourage their communities to do the same. To specially engage the needs of those effected by Hurricane Harvey follow this link: Public Good – Hurricane Harvey Relief

I am reminded of the words of John Wesley during this time of great need and opportunity to be good neighbors. “Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.”

May it be so with us,
