Lynda MacGibbon traded her small town farm house and community for a high-rise on the other side of the continent and with the move took on a challenge. What would it look like for her to intentionally live out the commandment of Jesus to love her neighbors? Not just the people she came into contact with at church or at work, but her actual neighbors. My Vertical Neighborhood: How Strangers Became a Commuinity is a delightful memoir about Lynda’s deliberate actions to love her neighbors well. And the best part? We get to meet and fall in love with her neighbors ourselves! Lynda’s heart for her community will challenge us not only to love, but to allow ourselves to be loved by the people who are literally the closest to us.
